I'm an amateur and proud of it

Friday, June 08, 2007 by Dave Winer.

There's a headline making the rounds of professional pubs, from CNN to South Africa, saying that bloggers are "infuriated" at being called amateurs. I'm listed as one of these alleged fury-filled people.  Permalink to this paragraph

Now tell me this, if I was so upset about it, why would I use the word so often to describe bloggers, including myself?  Permalink to this paragraph

Eric Auchard of Reuters (normailly, a reasonable guy) is the author. I know, I know, you don't write the headlines, some evil editor somewhere puts them over your words. And you know what, I don't care. ;-> Permalink to this paragraph
