Owen Thomas of Valleywag just called me and told me that Valleywag’s readers are calling him and other bloggers there being very irate at the fact that they posted my cell phone number. What’s ironic is that I’ve shared my phone number for more than two years on my blog and on my Facebook account. Hey, feel free to give me a call. If I’m open, I’ll take the call.
I’ve actually had people be irate at ME for posting my phone number. There seems to be this weird idea that if you post your phone number you’ll have your identity stolen, or worse. Maybe that’ll happen someday, but so far so good.
