DK on TechCrunch

Wow, what a week. After being interviewed by The New Paper, I was being mentioned on TechCrunch. They were talking about the $1 admin fee imposed by Nuffnang and reference my blog entry about this issue.

Many thanks to Uzyn and Cobalt Paladin for informing me that I was being mentioned on TechCrunch. I was at Millenia Walk’s coffee bean watching movie on my laptop and enjoying a cup of Mocha Latte when I got the twitter message. I could have gone to TechCrush TechCrunch straight away and impress the beautiful lady sitting next to me. But wireless@sg is, well, doing what most wireless@sg does. Unable to connect to internet even though I’m connected to the network. Sorry… I side tracked. Don’t get me started on wireless@sg….

It’s an honour to be mentioned on TechCrunch, the 4th most popular blog on Technorati. And I’m really flattered when they referred me as a ‘prominent blogger’. I’m floating already. AAAAHHHHH!!!! CELLING!! *BANG!!*

No lah, I’m not a prominent blogger. Still very far from it.

Another 5 second of fame this week. At this rate that I’m going, I think I’ll reach the 15 minutes of fame in a lifetime quota very soon.

I remember someone told me that only 2 Singapore companies have been mentioned on TechCrunch so far. Well, I guess we can consider Nuffnang as the 3rd now.

Update: The article has been translated to Japanese. Konichiwa!!!


  1. OK I don’t know which one is funnier…

    1. You actually were watching a movie on your laptop at Millenia Walk’s coffee bean on your date..


    2. That you actually mis-spelled TechCrunch as TechCrush, in the same line that you mentioned “the beautiful lady”…

    DK DK DK… 😛

  2. Putera emas: Don’t link me with nuffnang. I’m not related to them in any way. 😛

    Actually, the traffic from TechCrunch wasn’t as much as I was expecting. But yes, getting quite some traffic. And few more extra links from websites that reproduce TechCrunch’s article.
