More in an occasional series...
Saturdays in the blogosphere can sometimes be the most interesting of all. In the absence of hard news and press releases, it is a time for introspection, and sometimes, what they find isn't all that pretty. PodTech's Robert Scoble set off a little firestorm yesterday in saying that many of the top blogs don't link, particularly due to a lack of traction he found from a story he filed around Intel's new microprocessor fabrication processes.
After he lashed out against some of the top blogs, they responded and much of his angst was redacted. While he may have gone a little too far, or more likely, just chosen the wrong targets, he is discovering some of the tenets of PR away from representing a big corporation - not every target you think should cover you does. Jason Calicanis and Ryan Block chime in below.
Jason Calicanis: Scoble loses it... and gets it back.
Ryan Block: On linking, editorial
Robert Scoble: Pissing off the blogosphere…
In other news, baseball's opening day is approaching, and we can't wait. Unfortunately, as I'm in New York, I had to give away my 2007 A's fanfest tickets, but lucky for me, others from Athletics Nation went and took pictures.
