Commercial Break For Our Sponsors

It’s time for our occasional break to thank everyone for making TechCrunch what it is – our readers for reading and commenting, and our sponsors for keeping the lights on.

Here they are:

The Mystery Sponsor – An Internet startup who shall remain nameless is looking for a few good web developers and designers. They promise you will live like a king and work with some top 500 websites. All interested queries should mail their resume and samples to employer2.0 at They will reveal their identity to qualified applicants. Did I mention the $50,000 signing bonus?

Text Link Ads – If you’re blogging for dollars or pocket change, check out TLA and their website or RSS feed ads. Find out how much you’re worth with their ad calculator.

Edgeio – The premiere spot for web classifieds, Edgeio has over 100 million items in over 16,258 cities from over 162 countries. Looking for a location for your startup, check out their housing in SF housing.

Compete – If you’re looking for another opinion on web statistics, check out Compete. They have a toolbar that beats out the competition with a deal monitor and the ability to compare a laundry list of sites. Check out their photo site comparison here.

Carbonite – I’ve been using the service for a bit and it’s proven a really simple one-click way to back up important files. They still have a 1 month free trial for TC readers, so get it while it lasts.

DOMAINfest – This January 31st to February 3rd, the Renaissance Hotel in Hollywood California will be home to Domainfest, a conference for the domain name industry. $395 gets you a weekend of learning and “wild nights after rigorous days of learning”.

As always, we also want to thank MediaTemple for their excellent hosting and Jive Software for powering the TechCrunch Forums.
