Dave Winer says he’d like to be back in the Technorati top 100, pointing out that he was number one when the game began. I’d like to help him out.
Doc Searls is into his schtick today, providing supernova conference viewpoints like only Doc can do: playing David to Nathan Myhrvold’s Goliath, dishing on Myhrvold’s patent trolling.
David Weinberger, my favorite A-lister, also blogs from supernova and provides a different view of the rooms from Doc’s.
Shelley Powers, my favorite stealth A-lister, is blogging as usual from her center. I regret not making the time to stalk her and meet her face to face in St. Louis this weekend. Maybe next time I’ll have the gumption to call and offer to buy her lunch.
Seth Finkelstein, my favorite should-be-an-A-lister, takes a close look at the Britannica blog’s recent link baiting behavior.
Karen Schneider visits that topic too, and presents us with a cute lolcat (“I has interliberry loan”) as well.
Meanwhile, the consensus is that this week Susan Crawford put an end to telecom regulatory policy confusion and we’d all be smart to listen to her.
I have shied away from linking A-listers in general on these weekly lists. I can’t remember when the last time I linked Dave or Doc might have been. Partly I do that to avoid other people I respect, like Seth, from thinking I’m a suck-up. But today I wanted to suck-up a little for a couple of good reasons. One, it’s stupid not to link to the people I read most frequently, like Dave, David, and Doc. And two, I thought it appropriate because Chris Locke, my favorite blogger and one of my favorite writers, isn’t writing much these days because he’s sick. I thought a little link baiting might draw attention to his situation. Leave a comment if you’re moved to help and I’ll write you back and tell you how.
