Does being on TechMeme improve your sex life?

Geesh.

You’d think that getting on TechMeme improves your sex life or makes you money or something the way a small group of bloggers are bleating on and on about how TechMeme is unfair or how it’s a travesty that you can get added to TechMeme’s set of algorithm’s just by linking to TechMeme and proving you have enough traffic.

Me? I’ve been on TechMeme dozens of times. All it’s earned me is grief.

Are you worried about the elitism of A list jerks like me?

Then FREAKING LINK TO NEW BLOGGERS THAT WE HAVEN’T HEARD ABOUT YET!!!

That’s how you take down the A list. Link, baby, link!

What I find ironic is everyone who complains about TechMeme does nothing but link to TechMeme. They don’t link to a single new and unknown blogger.

Here’s an example. Today Ross Mayfield told me about this cool new site where you can share your PowerPoint slides: SlideShare.net.

Oh, sorry, I’m not playing the game right, am I?

Turns out if you attack the power structures of the Web you’ll get more links than if you just share cool new sites and link to them.

Sigh.

What do I know, I’m just a tired old A-list jerk…

Thanks to Hugh Macleod for the cartoon.

  1. I must be one heck of an accidental tourist because I came across you & Hugh by pure chance.

    I was hip to the A-list & didn’t even know it, huh?

  3. Robert: I just love to tease you. You are not the only one falling in love with wiki. I have been playing with Wiki for many months. I just can’t leave Wiki alone.

    I just missed you by a few hours and a few blocks that day. I was in Palo Alto doing a podcasting recording on a Wiki, a less known but a very sexy wiki to someone like me who love gadgets.

    Back to some interesting discussion.

    Isn’t blogging the wrong place to look for love? You ‘ll get admirers, fans or jerks on blogs. Oh I forgot those PR firms trying so hard to get your attention.

    I am attempted to start a blog more or less due to the fact that I am out from hiding and leading a tech org.

    Next love? A lot smarter love. Love without traveling! Ha ha.
