A TechCrunch Departure

TechCrunch has lost Jason Kincaid, one of the site’s more popular writers. Kincaid has been with TechCrunch since 2008. Earlier today he tweeted, “Thank you to TechCrunch — and all of its readers — for an amazing four years,” and linked to a farewell post on his personal blog:

You’ll note that this post doesn’t have any coy allusions as to what I’ll be doing next. The truth is, I’m not really sure —I’m fortunate in that I have several options, but I promised myself that I wouldn’t make any decisions until after I’ve redeemed the dancing classes I purchased on Google Offers, which will take a few weeks.

So keep watching this space, should you be so inclined. With any luck, I should be busting some moves soon enough.

Erick Schonfeld, TechCrunch’s Editor-in-Chief, bid adieu to Kincaid a few hours later on the site. “Jason has many fans here among readers and the staff alike. He helped to define the character of TechCrunch during our formative years, and he will always be a part of our family,” wrote Schonfeld.
