October 5th, 2009 · 25 Comments

As has been anticipated for a while–and discussed during the Ethics of Blogging panel–the United States Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has published explicit guidelines regarding how bloggers (at least within its jurisdiction) must disclose any “material connections” they have to the companies they endorse.  The full details are available here. There have been a number […]

Something Jeff Jarvis and I Agree On

April 7th, 2009 · 4 Comments

Recently I had a bit of a spat with Jeff Jarvis over how he characterizes Google’s transparency. Jarvis has positioned himself as the standard-bearer for all things Googley and I’ve taken on the un-Googley task of championing exploratory search, so it’s not surprise that we often find ourselves disagreeing. But, in the same Steve Rubel […]

Jeff Jarvis Comes Clean

April 2nd, 2009 · 4 Comments

The other day, I attended a launch party where Jeff Jarvis talked about his now best-selling book, “What Would Google Do?” I came back and assembled my reactions in a post entitled “What Would Google Do? / What Does Google Do?“.

Week 1 at Google: Information Overload!

November 13th, 2009 · 7 Comments

As you might imagine, it’s quite a switch to go from criticizing Google from the outside to being on the inside. Jeff Jarvis, who was gracious enough not to make fun of me in public, nonetheless admitted to me privately that the news had made him chuckle. As I finish my first week, I can […]

As some of you know, I’m a karaoke junkie. But it’s my wife who has the classier repertoire, including “Who Will Buy?” from the musical Oliver!: Who will buy this wonderful morning? Such a sky you never did see! Who will tie it up with a ribbon And put it in a box for me? […]

Not All Google Critics Are Bigots

Jeff Jarvis wrote a post today entitled “Google bigotry“, in which he asserts that: Google has an image problem – not a PR problem (that is, not with the public) but a press problem (with whining old media people). He then goes on to launch a tirade against a Le Monde journalist whose offense was […]

August 16th, 2009 · 16 Comments

Arnon Mishkin wrote a post last Thursday on paidContent called “The Fallacy Of The Link Economy” that has been generating a lot of discussion, so I figured I’d join in the free-for-all.

News, Search Experience, and Value

May 23rd, 2009 · 3 Comments

I’ve been known to spar with Jeff Jarvis about Google’s role in the present and future of journalism, but I readily admit I’m something of an amateur. Thus I’m delighted to see a thoughtful post from Josh Young, a more serious and informed media junkie, entitled “Not by Links Alone“. In it, he does a great […]
