On TechCrunch 40

Allen Stern and Dave Winer noticed that my name is no longer on the list of judges for the TechCrunch 40 conference.

Allen guessed that was because of the impending birth of our son. Totally true. There’s no way I can make next week’s conference. I wish I could go. I’m missing several important conferences in the next month including this week’s Conversational Marketing event, Demo, and probably the Web 2.0 Summit.

Allen also noticed that Jason Calacanis was bragging that there’s big news coming from Arrington on Tuesday. I have a call into Arrington about that.
