TechCrunch’s Arrington Moves to Seattle

5/3/10

Michael Arrington, the founder of TechCrunch, the Silicon Valley-based startup and technology blog, said today he has moved his primary residence to Seattle and will split his time between here and the Bay Area. Arrington calls Seattle “the minor leagues of the startup world,” but admits it’s “a hotbed of entrepreneurism.” He cites the desire to “mix things up in my life” and “easy access to awesome skiing” as personal reasons for the move. Seattle tech startups should expect to see a lot more of Arrington starting now, he says.
