Why Is Kim Kardashian At A Tech Conference?! — Because she is co-creator of one of the most popular apps of 2014. Because she is poised to make $200 million in cold hard cash from a mobile app this year. Because at $700K a day in earnings just from the app, she is still more successful than most startup founders, at least from a revenue standpoint.

And The TechCrunch Disrupt Europe Finalists Are Crate, Disease Diagnostic Group, Oscult And PhotoMath — Over 1,500 people have walked through door at this year's TechCrunch Disrupt Europe conference in London. We had everyone from Elvis impersonators to people dressed up as chickens participate, as one does at a tech conference.

We’ve Got Questions For Tim Armstrong At Disrupt Europe — Yes, we've invited our boss to our conference, but he has a lot to say for himself. I mean, we too want to know if Aol, and by transitive property TechCrunch, is being sold to Yahoo, am I right? Tim Armstrong, CEO and Chairman of TechCrunch's parent company, AOL, will be joining us for a fireside chat on Monday, October 20th.

When Anna Met Jony — The fashion industry is secretly sick of being underestimated and under-intellectualized. There's a pivotal scene in "The Devil Wears Prada" where Meryl Streep gives her assistant Andy a talking-to about the hypocrisy inherent in her disdain for fashion - as it's given life to the blue drab sweater she is wearing.

Yahoo Acquires Mobile Messaging App MessageMe — Yahoo has acquired mobile messaging application MessageMe, a Whatsapp-like service with $11.9 million in reported outside funding. The deal, we're hearing from multiple sources, is a talent acquisition that isn't great for MessageMe investors, falling into the "single-digit" millions at best. Yahoo is announcing the acquisition internally today.

The Consumerprise Comes To Vistor Registration With Envoy — When you think about things that need to be disrupted, the entryway sign-in booklet is probably the last thing on your mind. And yet. Having spent four years at Google and three years at Twitter as a backend engineer, Larry Gadea started building Envoy, an iPad-based, visitor-registration system this past November.

Product Hunt Raises $6 Million From A16Z — Product Hunt, the aggregation site that many people consider a direct competitor to TechCrunch and other tech blogs due to its ability to surface new tech products and startups, has raised a hefty series A, we're hearing.

The Startup Battlefield Finalists, Disrupt SF 2014 Edition — In our new conference venue at Pier 48, twenty six battlefield competitors (and two audience choice winners) have pitched their hearts out on stage at TechCrunch Disrupt SF these past two days. It's been a nerve-wracking process for these founders, presenting their business ideas to some of the most accomplished people in our industry, and having those people give feedback on whether those ideas are worthy or not.
