A Comment Re: Scoble Being Erased
Scoble got “erased” by FaceBook. I commented on his blog:
Some people think I’m an asshat for blogging anonymously… but I think too many invest far too much and risk too much on-line.
I know you’ve made a business out of your work on-line and that’s OK but for many the risks exceed the reward.
Text can make as many “enemies” as it can “friends”… and neither of those roles actually map to a real world relationship. It’s all virtual and we’re all in a walled garden w.r.t. on-line words.
Real people don’t obsess like a few of us do with these issues.
You were not erased. You were “managed”. You signed up to be managed. IMHO.
