"After the public lynching over the weekend where I was attacked for not attending a conference that I never agreed to attend," blogs TechCrunch honcho Michael Arrington, "I've canceled all upcoming speaking engagements." But he's still going to Davos in January. Do the math: Arrington isn't going to make any public presos at Davos — he's just part of the audience. They'll let him blog it. So don't get all huffypants about how Mike's going and you're not.
