Moving Forward


I’ve had a lot of amazing opportunities in my life so far, and I thank many people for where I’ve come today — my family, my friends, and especially Robert Scoble — but there are some opportunities too good to say no to.

Starting Monday (tomorrow), I’ll be joining TechCrunch working on events, conferences and business development with Asad Akbar (Events Director) and Heather Harde (CEO). I’ve been friends with TechCrunch for some time now, and have been working from their new Palo Alto office time to time on my projects (Qik and Teens in Tech), and have been looking into other routes to follow in my life.

I’m excited to be joining TechCrunch considering first and foremost, I was a blogger, and that environment is what I love. I’ll be joining an amazing group of individuals whose writing is all over the internet. I’m sure a lot of you are probably thinking – what’s going to happen with Qik? Don’t worry, I’m not leaving Qik. Both Qik and TechCrunch are part time jobs, and I’ll be able to work both.

I just want to thank Michael Arrington and Heather Harde for this amazing opportunity at TechCrunch, and for all the people involved. Look out TechCrunch — here comes Daniel!

  1. Congrats Daniel! I know you’ll make the most of this opportunity- onwards & upwards 🙂

  2. So does this mean it will be easier for us to get a TechCrunch article in the future? Hahaha just kidding buddy, congrats and look forward to seeing what is next in your life.

  3. Congrats Daniel, but aren’t you stretching yourself a bit thin?

    One word of advice; enjoy youth, but balance all the opportunities that come your way.

    I wish you much success and appreciate your contributions to the Tech industry.

  4. Darn, and we were just about to offer you a Joy of Tech propeller beanie technician apprenticeship.

    Curse you Arrington!!!!


  5. I have no idea how I missed this piece of information but wow…congratulations!

    This is awesome, hope you have a great experience (I know you will!) and I am really glad to hear that nothing happens to Teens In Tech!

    I wonder if you will be so busy now though, we might barely talk 😛

  6. Ah, I’m a bit late to the game here, but I wanted to offer you my congratulations, too! Saw you in one of the TC videos. Super cute!

    You’re kickin’ butt this summer. Well done. =)
