Another great troll, this one trying to bring up Shelley Powers' critique of Clay's "social software summit." Someone's having a good time trying to stir the pot here.

    Really, Tim, do you dismiss all criticism as "another great troll" now?? BTW, I never got to Clay's "social software summit", and have not read Shelley Powers'critique. So, sorry, no cigar. Got a reference?

    As far as stirring the pot is concerned: Even your pot needs stirring now and again. Get used to it.

    What I find ironic is how much Orlowski's screed has irked you. When that kind of thing happens, I tend to figure that something hit home. While I like most of the O'Reilly Assoc. crowd, sometimes people seem to get a little full of themselves.

    Yes, I'm in a bad mood. I was supposed to come to ETC for the Expo and my work wouldn't let me. *pout* Also, I'm posting anonymously because I don't want to bother with signing up and logging in.

    Besides, you have a tendency to quote people on your site and in your blog without notice or the courtesy of a link back. While this is not illegal, it is discourteous. At least posting anonymously I won't expect anything of the sort.
