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
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
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?“. One of my strongest objections to Jarvis’s shtick is that he extols transparency as […]
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 […]
Who Will Buy?
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? […]

He then goes on to launch a tirade against a Le Monde journalist whose offense was […]
The Raging Debate Over The Link Economy
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. First, let me try to reduce each person’s argument to a direct quote that best sums up his position. Arnon Mishkin: The vast […]
News, Search Experience, and Value
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 […]
The Guardian headline sums it up: “Big newspaper sites ‘erode value of news’, says Sly Bailey“. Sly Bailey is the chief executive of the Trinity Mirror, one of the UK’s largest newspaper publishers. Here’s what she has to say: A consumer is now as likely to discover newspaper content on Google, visit our sites, then […]
Which Blowhard Are You?
I’m a few weeks late to find this flow chart in Wired to tell you which blowhard you are (I’d only seen a small subset of it before). Find out if you are Chris Anderson, Dave Winer, Jason Calcanis, Jeff Jarvis, Mark Cuban, Mike Arrington, Nick Carr, or Seth Godin. Enjoy!
