Scoble’s new A List - Revenge of the Nerds
The Truth indeed hurtsI
I came across this post by Robert Scoble of Microsoft fame and was appalled by not only the cheap shots that were taken at Dave Winer, but also by Scoble’s self-serving high handed approach to the problem.
So far it seems that I got the last word on the matter. It may be older news now but it is important enough to deserve a comment, so here is my response that I left on Scoble’s blog:
I’ll be frank Robert. Most of us are sick and fed up with the Scobles and Winers labeling themselves as the cream of the blogosphere. A cut above the rest of us. The blue-bloods of blogdome that the rest of us mere mortals should grovel and “suck up” to.What do you expect when you create a class system like that? Of course the ‘peasants’ are going to throw tomatoes and yell “off with his head”. It’s human nature.
Sorry for being the bearer of bad news my friend but here is my advice. Both yourself and Dave and the rest of the rabble should cut the bullshit “A-List” conflab and don’t take yourself so seriously. Because believe it or not — most of us don’t.
Of course, speaking the truth may result in my never receiving a link from Scoble. For the truth does indeed hurt but I never was one to grovel or follow the crowd anyway.
Here are the key sentences that I found most revealing:
“Cause I know how this game is played. Once Dave is outta the way, they are coming after me.”
Shame on all of them. Nuff said.
