Web 2.0 and Alistair Darling

Alistair Darling + Web 2.0Alistair Darling is not a popular man in the pubs around Edinburgh. After the budget hike on duty on a pint,  the Utopia in Easter Road, has made it clear that he’s not welcome. A call to arms on the blog Musings of a Reactionary Snob has galvanised some web2.0’ers and now pubs in Oxfordshire are standing with their Leith counterparts. A Facebook group called “Alistair Darling your barred”  has over 200 members.

Top 50 most influential blogs

One thing that the bloggers are good for is creating a furory. It’s what we love and hate about blogging, anyone worth reading has an opinion and are vocal about it.

So perhaps the journalists in the observer mag should have been more prepared for the avalanche of commentary (and sad to say scorn) which has poured in on them for their compilation of the most powerful top 50 blogs.

Worth a read to revisit old friends and make some new ones.
