Pistols at Dawn: Ryan Block Now on TechCrunch20 Panel of Experts

Engadget’s Ryan Block will represent the gadget and gizmo folks at the TechCrunch20, a supercool symposium of all things Web 2.0 hosted by our own Michael Arrington and the illustrious Jason “The Animal” Calacanis. Michael told me that I couldn’t be on the panel in the interest of preserving impartiality, but we all know it’s because Ryan and Pete Rojas essentially own the gadget space and we just rent their air. I’ll be glad to finally sit down with Ryan over a soy mocha fat free latte with a twist and clear the air of all the Gizmodo/Engadget/Everyone Else rancor that has been floating around for years. Welcome, Ryan.
