  1. Would it not be ironic, Dave Winer, the perpetual advocate of the blogosphere and the little guy, sells to the company that makes the blogosphere a mess?

  2. I can’t speak to Verisign’s motivations, but they came and spoke to me around the same time. At the time, I suggested that a paid ping service wouldn’t work, but now I’m not so sure. I think there might be an SLA business in there somewhere. I don’t think it would be very big, but it’d justify the couple million bucks they paid.

  3. I know what they want to do ..Hell I tried to buy Blo.gs

    These ping servers if handled properly with the community are very powerful. All companies should learn that transparency is the only way to act because the blogosphere will unleash the truth.

    Yahoo is a great example of how to engage the community using the blogosphere.
