We're Big in Japan!

Me and Ken Bruen (not pictured left) seem to have Japanese cyber-doppelgangers. Have a look at this recent interview with him.

Reads remarkably like another insightful post I read this week. The original was way better though. This lazy bugger's not bothered to use links or pictures! Pfft. If you want something done right...

So, do you reckon this is a good thing?

I'm not sure what's going on there. I've seen wikipaedia pages similarly harvested. Could it be an automated thing, d'yer think?

Stuart Neville said...

Yep, there are quite a few sites out there that just screen-scrape blogs for their content. It would have been nice if they'd linked back to you, though.

Mike - So you could argue my site's as popular as wikipedia? Nice.

Stuart - Yeah, I actually don't mind the post being screen-scraped (lovely terminology BTW) as it just means more coverage for the writers and books I'm promoting, but a link would indeed have been good.

Ah well.

not to do a link is just plain rude.
