  1. I wonder if Dvorak is still be blaming Microsoft for this.

    Meanwhile, we are hearing about Avalanche as though it is in beta. Articles begin to emerge about the product just as some dubious articles appear all over the Net about how BitTorrent has something to do with spyware. Interesting coincidences indeed.

  2. That Dvorak article still irritates me. It’s a long-winded baseless accusation that the negative Bit Torrent press is some super-secret cabal by Microsoft.

    In it, he alleges that Chris Boyd of Vital Security (who broke this story a few weeks back, though in regards to Direct Revenue) brought it up to discredit Bit Torrent. His only supporting link was that Boyd is a Microsoft MVP Dvorak never heard of. Dvorak then goes on to lament on the sad state of journalism after penning a POS fluff piece full of errors.

    Though it got attention from the platform zealots and Slashdotted, so I’m sure his editors are happy. Hits are all that matter, apparently.

  3. dvorak has gone even more cuckoo and i think what he doesn’t understand clearly is how complex the world has become. it is not his familiar world of pcs and mac-bashing. he is a pc era guy trying to be intelligent about things he doesn’t have a full grip on. on the issue of chris boyd, well, i don’t know why he would he be a microsoft lackey. he has been exposing microsoft security holes for so long. oh well.
