An excellent Gore Vidal interview on politics post-September 11. The man’s intellect is immense. Why doesn’t he get elected president?
Here’s the scenario: Robert Scoble links to noted Microsoft hater Russell Beattie’s article on “M$ SmartPhones Catching Up.”. Russell rdirects any inbound links from Scoble’s site to one of the Microsoft/DOJ judgement documents (Scoble is a Microsoft employee these days). So far, so witty.
But then you read the comment that Beattie has posted to Scoble’s site, and you realise this guy has a really unhealthy perspective on the world. “Hey Fuckwit… I think Microsoft (and those who work for them) is scum… Go away, don’t come back, and don’t bother linking to me any more” for example.
