Shoddy Reporting, Invective, and Arrogance.  Yeah, I Want Some of That  —  One.  Two.  Three.  Four.  Five.  Six.  Seven.  Eight.  Nine.  Ten.  —  As I was growing up, my mother instructed me that, when I got angry or frustrated, to count to ten before saying anything.

Rafe Needleman / Webware.com:
At the TechCrunch50, an unfair advantage?  —  It stands to reason that TechCrunch the blog will have an unfair advantage in covering the TechCrunch50 event.  The same team produces both products, and the company has put a gag order on companies accepted to present on stage.

Startups: your web site sucks  —  I visited each website from the list of Demo finalists.  —  Boy, do they suck.  Really, really suck.  —  Does no one understand how to market themselves?  —  It's amazing to me that not a single Demo website has learned from the lessons of Gary Vaynerchuk's Winelibrary.tv.

Om Malik / GigaOM:
Google at 10: Larry, Sergey & Me  —  It is not clear how old Google is - some argue that world's largest search engine operator is 13 - after all it operated in stealth for about 3 years before launching in September 1998.  Many major news organizations are going with September 2008 as the tenth anniversary so I am going to play along.

How Many Reviewers Should Be in the Kitchen?  —  FOR polar or lunar exploration, we are an intrepid species, eagerly vying with one another to be first.  But we're not so brave when it comes to being the first to buy a particular product or service.  We much prefer letting someone else go on ahead and report back.
Ed Oswald / BetaNews:
Where does Sarah Palin stand on technology issues?  —  While Gov. Palin is fairly new to the political scene nationwide, the Alaska native's stance on key topics may give clues into the policies she would support if she were elected Vice President. … John McCain shocked the political world …
