UPDATED: Hugh Macleod: incompetent linker?

Hugh has one of amusing cartoons up, inspired by what he calls the "annual BlogHer non-debate."

The post is an interesting study in linking habits. His link under the word BlogHer actually goes to Guy Kawasaki talking about it. His links to *named* women talking about BlogHer go only to women who didn't attend it. Fascinating.

I have nothing else to say. Draw your own conclusions.

[But if only I knew how to find Shelley Powers' Burningbird archives I would point everyone for old time's sake to a post she wrote that was one of my early inspirations for BlogHer. Alas, I'm not sure where she's keeping that old stuff. Anyone?]

UPDATED: Shelley kindly reminded me that Google is good for that sort of thing, and so it was. D'oh!

Comments:
You know, Elisa, you could have linked to dozens of women who had a lot to say on BlogHer (attending or not). Why did you link to MacLeod?

Last I looked, they're still at the Burningbird site. Here's how to do a search:

http://weblog.burningbird.net/index.php?s=blogher. Or you can use Google search.
 
Because I was annoyed, Shelley :P

And it was easy to pop off this post...as opposed to the magnum opus I'm currently writing (which has no links either since it's all about my perceptions.)

I had a direct link to your old post in my blog, but it just went to the page where you said you were shutting Burningbird down.

But damn, V-8 hitting my head motion, Google found the post in a heart beat. I'll update the post.
 
ummmm... my blog post wasn't actually about BlogHer.... Heh.

LOL!
