don’t be evil, Google!

Filed under: Uncategorized — eeplebert @ 4:10 am

I was reading my usual daily websites, a little slower this week. Trying to turn grief into art and still look for a job.

I wondered what happened to Palms Out Remix Sunday. It just stopped a few weeks back. I downloaded it religiously over the summer and listened to it as a barometer of DJ and remix culture.

Turns out Google’s being evil. Read about it here.

In short, blogger’s no longer the mp3blogger’s paradise it once might have been. After seeing a titan of the scene treated in such a fashion, I hope users flee blogger in droves.

But my deep lifelong sense of sarcasm makes me ask: does Conde Nast own wordpress? Does News Corp?

Am I jumping from one titanic to another (banned from myopera, starting over here at WP), or is there some decent community-minded spirit here like there is at livejournal?

Can I get an Amen, Russ?

  1. Amen?

    I’ve poked around the FAQ and the dreaded wiki entry, and it looks like WP isn’t owned by some media juggernaut. Other than a few blogs that got “ate” (usually when switching from regular to full screen) I can’t think of a single complaint.
