TechCrunch Acquires FuckedCompany

FuckedCompany 2.0

Web 2.0 has finally consumed Web 1.0 once and for all with today’s announcement by Michael Arrington that TechCrunch has acquired FuckedCompany, the notorious tech company deadpool website started by AdBrite founder Phil Kaplan in 2000.

Wait, April 1st is tomorrow…

Since FC focuses on the negative news coming out of startups, and TechCrunch tends to focus on the positive, this combination may seem odd. But the sites are in fact extremely complimentary.

UPDATE: Of course, as expected, this was in fact an April Fool’s Day prank. Regardless, I think it would have been great if it was actually were the real deal.
