So TechCrunch has officially announced the dates for TechCrunch50 and it looks like they’re very much overlapping with the DEMO Fall08 technology conference and I’m sure all hell will break loose with this. I wonder what Chris Shipley and Carla Thompson think of this? We can look forward to quite a few bitchmemes from now until September concerning this awesomesauce showdown!
TechCrunch50 is said to be taking place September 8-10 in San Francisco, while DEMO will be running their conference from September 7-9. Will Tech50 be a day late and a dollar short on this one?
I’m sure Arrington has went on record to announce that he had no clue, but I call bullshit for Arrington. How the hell could you NOT know?!
In the meantime, this will only increase the pressure building behind those that will be previewing their products and services and the shows. These products will definitely do some making and breaking…unless of course this doesn’t blow out of proportion, which is highly unlikely. At the same time, it’s bad business for entrepreneurs, is it not? I mean, it would kick ass to be able to showcase your goods at BOTH conferences, not just one. At least you have TechCrunch to blame it on. But seriously Arrington, what were you thinking when you did this?
