I don't really get the whole Pajamas Media / Open Source Media thing.
I didn't get it when it was first proposed. I didn't get it while others signed up, some of them folks I know. I didn't get it when they (apparently) pooped on Dennis the Peasant. I didn't get it when they changed the name to something 1/10th as creative as Pajamas Media.
I still don't get it, as there doesn't seem to be any clear indication of what it actually is.
But, whatever it is or turns out to be or wants to be when it grows up, I wish'em nothing but the best. It's not like I'm going to change the world sitting here with a beer.
Just a few tips though:
Further, it's "our reputation and integrity are directly related," not "is." And let's not mention my pet peeve of "try and."
There's a certain irony in a blog portal stating that:
You may not reproduce, distribute, copy, publish, enter into any database, display, modify, create derivative works, transmit, or in any way exploit any part of this site. The only exceptions to this are that you may download material from Our Site for your own personal use, provided such download is limited to making one machine readable copy and/or one print copy that limited to occasional articles of personal interest only. No other use of the content of Our Site is permitted.Hello, hyperlinking and excerpting to the sweet tune of "fair use" are the bread and butter (and beer) of the blogosphere. Try to put a stop to that and you might as well hire Dowd and put her blather behind a pay-to-read wall.
Anyway, I figure some folks will make some money out of the whole thing, and maybe it will turn into something massive and impressive and inspiring. For my friends who have hooked their stars to it, I certainly hope so, if only for the free beer and to say "I knew them when."
...and, crikey, lots more. Just visit Technorati.
