TechCrunch Disrupt is taking place in Berlin right now and attendees traveled from all over the world to be there.

One founder traveled a particularly long way, not to pitch his startup, but to meet TechCrunch founder Michael Arrington.

During an interview with Tim Armstrong, the founder made his intentions known:

“I’m a big fan of TechCrunch,” the man said. “I’ve been reading it since 2008 almost every single day. I especially came here to meet Mike…and Tim. And I’m just wondering if I can get a picture with you.”

“You came all the way here to meet Mike?” Tim Armstrong replied, smiling in disbelief. A flight from New Delhi to Berlin takes about 8 hours.

Armstrong invited the founder to take his seat on stage. Arrington then proceeded to make the man’s startup a $US10 million acquisition offer on behalf of AOL.
