The magazine reports on Arrington’s growing influence and how a group of Dutch entrepreneurs gatecrashed his house looking for an introduction, the state of his rented home office which it says is a mess and includes a futon for out-of-town entrepreneurs, and how TechCrunch has clashed with other media. Arrington:
I’m human. I’ve put my entire life into this blog, and when I’m attacked, it’s emotional. I’m going to react sometimes — that’s just me. Does that mean I’m flawed? Yeah. Does that mean I’m not being 100 percent efficient about business? Yeah. But it really hurts when people attack me, and I think people who don’t respond aren’t very human or very interesting.
