Those who know me personally will know that today I was out of action accompanying someone from my family to hospital. That meant I wasn’t online most of the day, and the reason I couldn’t attend “Le Web 3” in Paris this week. So it’s come as a surprise, to say the least, to see what has happened with TechCrunch UK & Ireland and my colleague Sam Sethi. Although I was notionally editor of the site, in practice Sam and I co-edited it (it being a blog) and we shared the writing workload. Now, It’s been a difficult day in all respects, so rather than be hasty, I am going to write something about all this here tomorrow.
