Forbes Flogs Blogs in Attack of the Blogs Article


Want to get a bunch of coverage from bloggers while pissing them off at the same time? If you are Daniel Lyons, write a Forbes cover story trashing blogs, calling bloggers “lynch mobs” and providing information on how to “fight back”. More on this from Doc Searls, Xeni Jardin at Boing Boing, Dan Gillmor, Om Malik and Steve Rubel.

Web logs are the prized platform of an online lynch mob spouting liberty but spewing lies, libel and invective. Their potent alliles in this pursuit include Google and Yahoo.

Looks like Backlash 2.0 is now in full swing.
