Diamond in the rough
It's an IP world where anyone can play. My humble site clearly can't hold a candle to Engadget or BoingBoing in terms of traffic, but I am flattered by the number of recent new "subscribers" I have, according to what Bloglines reports to me. However, with this admittedly humble "status" comes an obligation, in my view, to highlight others who are writing really interesting stuff. Mainstream media may pass off blog-derived info as its own investigative work, but it only builds up bad karma in the long run. I don't know how many readers know my cyberfreund Lars, but he has written one helluva post on Skype, which richly deserves to be read.
