We see one blog take great strides in giving different, interesting, engaging content and we see another rise out of the ashes of the first doing each piece a little different, a little more interesting, a little more engaging.
Pando Daily made a controversial decision to not continue to do business with folks doing business with a competitor, in this case Tech Crunch.
Perhaps more bizarre, MG Siegler, as a partner with Pando Daily, was already writing a column with Tech Crunch. So its only when he announced he’d be involved in a Tech Crunch conference that there was an issue.
I guess there can’t be room for two.
Not sure we can’t side with the one not associated with Aol, though.
Lots of questions about the PandoDaily situation. To be completely honest, I’m a bit surprised by how this went down. I think Michael’s response is appropriate.
The problem seemed to be us participating in TechCrunch Disrupt (and I assume more Michael than myself since I’m still a TechCrunch contributor). But we both speak at a lot of conferences. And I view it as valuable that we speak at a wide range of conferences.
I still think PandoDaily has an opportunity to evolve the tech blogging space. Unfortunately, it won’t be with myself or Michael involved. Oh well. Plenty of other places to write on the Internet. Like right here, for example.
