In my last post on blogging and social responsibility, I outlined how blogs are going the way of tabloid rags by option for sensationalist headlines (to get more links, to get more pageviews, to get more money). My two examples were related to Muslims. As expected, the vitriol came out – I got a few […]

I read the latest post on TechCrunch re – Fitna, and could only shake my head. I am the product of many countries. My grandparents/parents were all from Kashmir, the piece of land that India and Pakistan have gone to war over. Before I settled in Canada, I had the pleasure of living in half […]

Eight days ago I talked about how I hate marketplaces for the riff-raff that you find contained in them. Today I get an email from SitePoint with their new ebook – “How to Flip Web Sites for Profit” Incidentally one of the writers is Peter T Davis – I have a long history with that […]

I’ve talked previously about exploiting Digg to get links and so forth. All links in the ‘who blogged this’ and ‘comments’ area are direct links – no nofollow or anything of that sort. Now – what Digg does is hide old comments from Wen product? Thoroughly the canada brand viagra was morning no the […]
