On September 28, 2010, at its TechCrunch Disrupt conference in San Francisco, AOL announced that it would acquire TechCrunch. The transaction was rumored to be between $25m and $40m.In 2011, the site came under fire for possible ethics violations, leading to Arrington's departure. Other writers, including Paul Carr and Sarah Lacy, followed suit.
