Success Story: Michael Arrington: From Corporate Law to Leading Tech Blogger

Michael ArringtonNewsweek recently published an interview with former lawyer Michael Arrington, publisher of the wildly popular Tech Crunch blog, which reviews virtually every newly launched business, product and service in the "Web 2.0" space (that is, sites with a community building, social networking angle).  The blog enjoys an estimated 5,000,000 visitors per month, and is followed religiously by venture capitalists, Silicon Valley executives and other Internet entrepreneurs. As Arrington succinctly explains: "We facilitate the flow of information in [Silicon Valley] in a way that's a lot more efficient than it was before blogs were around."

Here's the most recent post - about the iPhone craze.

Arrington began his career as an associate at the law firm of O’Melveny & Myers and then Wilson Sonsini, working exclusively with technology companies such as idealab!, Netscape, Pixar, and Apple (as well as the venture funds and investment banks financing them) on IPOs, venture financings, and merger transactions. He parlayed this experience into a biz dev position at a hot Internet startup - RealNames - but later left to co-found Achex, which was sold to First Data for $32 million a year later.
