Michael Arrington, dumpster diver

Aside for his habit of throwing money at dodgy startups which are then given lavish coverage in his blog, TechCrunch editor Michael Arrington has a skinflint reputation. (Certainly, the bloggers in his employ have never known largesse.) A college chum of Arrington's at Claremont-McKenna now tells us that Arrington, spotting a market opportunity, edged out a poor family to corner the market on recycling his dorm's beer cans. From earning beer money, to Davos. Impressive! (Photo by Ryan Froerer)
