Michael Arrington locks that down

Give it up for Michael Arrington. When the TechCrunch founder opened the guest list for his site's seventh party, he chose a wiki that only allows one editor at a time. Delays frustrated hundreds of Valley hard chargers dying to get in. (Many claim they spent two hours hitting "refresh" hoping for their chance to sign up for the party.) Now that wiki has proven so popular that he had to shut it down.

Sez Mike, "I hate wasting people's time and I can imagine how frustrating it must be to sit there and hit 'refresh'." Sure, Mike. You don't like to toy with people's emotions on a Friday morning. But deep down in your heart, doesn't it feel kinda cool to be the new Truman Capote?
