Hey. eric eldon here from venturebeat. i’ve been enjoying your posts.
are you set on a solo blogging career, or would you consider writing for another blog. say, venturebeat?
Almost exactly six years ago, Eric Eldon changed my life. That may sound like hyperbole — it is not. That message, sent via Facebook, truly did alter the course of my life.
Today, Eric announced he is stepping down from his role atop TechCrunch to “try something pretty different.” And while I have nothing but respect for that decision, the tech press is a little worse for it — as are we all, as readers.
