Michael Arrington is concerned that I am comparing him to a Nazi, in my first rambling post about Gnomedex the other day, that mentioned him and TechCrunch.

In that post I stated that the whole TechCrunch phenomenon reminded me of the first fifteen minutes of Schindler's List. Now, upon reflection, and checking Wikipedia, and thinking about Godwin's Law, that was inflammatory and extreme. I wasn't thinking at all about the dark aspects of that film or that era, but rather just the opportunistic business aspects of Oskar Schindler that were recounted in the film's first 15 mins or so.

I apologize to Mr. Arrington for writing something that might have been construed, but certainly was not intended, to draw any comparisons between him and Nazis.

I hope he enjoys the rest of his 4th of July.
