Whileshowing off his home in Atherton, Calif., he boasts about how hecrammed 500 people into his one-acre backyard at a bash inFebruary. Then there are the official parties, like the one he threw inmid-August at August Capital, a nearby venture firm. Arringtonposted an open invitation on his website at 3 a.m. By sunrise, all500 spots were taken; the onslaught of traffic crashed his site. “Iknew it would be fast,” says Arrington, who houses so many out-oftownersin his ranch home that he often isn’t sure who’s crashing onwhich mattress on which floor in which room.Arrington, a 36-year-old entrepreneur behind a long list ofunrecognizable startups, has suddenly become one of the risingstars of Silicon Valley.
