Selective Objectivity And Slight Hypocriscy (BoingBoing Edition)
So maybe stepping away from all you tech guys has thrown me out of focus but wtf is going on here?
I thought the interesting part was that Arrington used the slight as the focus of the his post. It’s an open secret that Arrington and Rivera have been friends for a long time so I thought it kinda showed the typical Arrington objectivity.
The fact that Ingram also saw it as a slight too really surprised me (though I dug [ha!] the stop digging line at the end of his post.)
The real problem is that it’s kinda obvious that the new Technorati CEO has no plan.
That’s too bad because I liked the site (though I haven’t visited it in months).
We all know what they need to do. Unfortunately Technorati seems like one of those bands that refuses to play the hits after the fans paid 50 bones for a ticket.
Note: No one wants to hear your new stuff if they can’t hear the old stuff,too.
If the original reason I went to your site is all beat up and broken don’t go handing me a some new doodad you’ve made. Fix the old shit first.
Now I love Boing Boing too, but one of Branson’s companies is in a court battle with a significant part of the online community. His company has showed, what some have called, blatant disrespect to the artistic internet community (whom Boing Boing serves) and not even Valleywag notes the tinge of hypocrisy.
