It is an excellent article and he conveys what I have been feeling for a couple years now, since Arrington was on his last legs at TechCrunch.
I have been bored by the whole scene. I want to feel like 1998 again, when I was excited for my Red Herring and Business 2.0 magazines to come in the mail to see what future was being built by kids in some distant city.

I crave those feelings again.
