Nothing irks a blogger more than no link respect. My post yesterday about Loren Munk’s video vignette of the New Museum getting pwnd has gone viral and today got picked up by AnimalNY, then Gothamist & finally Curbed (who knows where else it’ll end up).
The problem is that while Animal was kind enough to cite Loren’s name and my blog, the other two blogs wrote that “Animal reports” and “reports AnimalNY”…ummm, what exactly qualifies as “reporting”? Linking? That’s not cool guys because Loren did the reporting and the rest of us linked away.
Purging Loren’s name makes the rest of us–that do the grunt work for free–think you’re a bunch of douch bags….and btw, you didn’t give me any link love either.
Kottke had a great post about this phenomenon today: “Extreme borrowing in the blogosphere.”
