Michael Arrington taking leave from TechCrunch

I have been reading Tech Crunch for a long time and respect Michael Arrington for being fair. It is fairly impossible to please everyone and I am not surprised  that TechCrunch has its critics. In a civilized world there is always a need for  opposing views as a step to learnging and getting better. There is no cause to get personal and I am shocked at what Michael Arrington revealed in his post.  Michael Arrington has done a good job in using the social media first to turn a blog into a publishing machine and built up an audience, many times put a link to the opposing arguement in his post . See the Network Soloutions post from a few month's ago. The community needs to gather to make sure people are not intimadated for writing their vies and hope this does not happen to other influencers.

Everyone needs to do this some time and get a fresh perspective of life. Michael I am sure you will be back with better and bigger things. Good luck.

From Washington DC, Emirates is an outlier, it flies in the morning at 10.55 from Washington Dulles Airport (IAD) and reaches Dubai at around 8.30 a.m. Other flights, Etihad, Qatar and flights with European stopovers take off after 9 p.m at night.
I love this timing but it does cause a disagreement in my house. My wife prefers to fly Eithad due to the timings. My wife's viewpoint is that it is difficult to sleep on the Emirates flight since it starts in the morning. I enjoy the morning flight. My game plan is to sleep less for a few days to my Emirates flight. Once on the flight, I divide …
