TechCrunch Gets It

We refer to TechDirt a lot here on TLF because of the good information and analysis there, and the engagement of its writers on policy issues. I want to throw props to another Tech[Something] blog, though – TechCrunch.

I’ve been reading it for a while now. TechCrunch is very forward-looking in terms of Web apps and information business. I ain’t gonna lie to ya’ – I don’t understand everything I see there. But I don’t understand everything I see on the bus either – and that’s still interesting and entertaining.

I’m particularly pleased with TechCrunch because of the acknowledgement it gave yesterday to

I like WashingtonWatch because it translates Bills into understandable costs and allows direct and collaborative feedback before the Bill is voted on. These are new web ideas put to work in a tangible and useful form. I hope our elected representatives are among the readers.

The other day, I blogged about how technology-aided transparency may defeat the twin scourges of rational ignorance and rational inaction in the area of politics and public policy. TechCrunch sees the vision.
