Michael Arrington interview

I was talking to Michele Neylon last night and he was in great form noting that the number of subscribers to his site had passed the 100 hundred mark – I’m afraid I punctured his balloon when I mentioned I had just been interviewing Michael Arrington – Michael only set up his TechCrunch blog reviewing Web 2.0 products last June and he already has over 15,000 subscribers! That’s right, 15,000 subscribers in less than 6 months!

I had a fascinating chat with Michael – he spoke about his background before TechCrunch, his famous BBQs, and his plans for the future. Michael really impressed me with his breadth of knowledge of what’s hot and more importantly what’s coming down the line – he was easy to talk to and generous with his knowledge and time.

As we are coming up to the American holiday season (Thanksgiving), I am going to hold off on publishing this podcast until next Monday – put it in your calendars! Oh! and for those who thought the previous interviews were a shade long, this one comes in at a shade under 30 minutes.

  1. I can’t wait to hear it Tom – TechCrunch is definitely one of my top 5 blogs. In fact, so much so that Emmet Connolly and myself decided to do an ‘Irish TechCrunch’ which Mike was kind enough to endorse.

    His achievement with TechCrunch really is incredible and there’s no doubt that he has tapped into a great niche with extraordinary passion.

  2. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed James – despite the poor quality of the phone line, Michael really impressed me in the interview!

  3. Ireland rocks!

    Tom, it was so much fun talking to you yesterday. I haven’t bee sleeping much, so I apologize if I rambled.

    James, we need to talk about your new blog and integrating it with TC. I know I owe you an email…
