Inside the TechCrunch child labor scandal

No doubt you’ve been reading about the intern at TechCrunch who asked for a MacBook Air in exchange for writing a blog post. And he got busted. Well, there’s more. The website eSarcasm has discovered something deeper, darker..and more sinister than previously imagined. Something about a “digital sweatshop” hidden deep beneath the TechCrunch offices.  An expose’ on who is really writing all those TC posts. Hmmmmm.

Daniel, we hardly knew ye

See that kid with the deer-in-the-headlights look?  There’s a good reason for that. Meet Daniel Brusilovsky, won’t you? It seems that Daniel wrote a post on TechCrunch, in exchange for a MacBook Air.  (At least it wasn’t a Dell.)

Michael Arrington gave him the hook, which you can read here. Danny comments here. PS, don’t forget to update that LinkedIn page.
