Dave Winer and Jason Calacanis

Filed under: Blogging,Internet — Les Bain @ 2:24 pm

Dave Winer and Jason Calacanis had a disagreement. There was apparently yelling, raised voices, a ruined friendship, and multiple blog posts (this one included).

Blogging about this (me included) is the blogosphere version of newspapers writing about Paris Hilton.

Many of the B and C list bloggers are trying to be A list bloggers so they too can complain about personal attacks (Winer and Calacanis).

When was the last time anyone said “well meaning people disagree”.

Thoughts on Iraq

3. Again, if the campaign is protracted, the resources of the State will not be equal to the strain.

7. It is only one who is thoroughly acquainted with the evils of war that can thoroughly understand the profitable way of carrying it on.
