It’s nice to see while I’m visiting my folks for the holdays that the Virginia blogosphere can keep with the spirit of Christmas for perhaps an hour or so. In checking in today, I notice that a little controversy has erupted regarding Waldo’s removal of a blog from his aggregator.
Waldo is of course free to restrict those blogs he wants to aggregate in any way he chooses, regardless of whether I think he’s doing it fairly or not. Nothing is stopping anyone else from setting up their own aggregator, putting in the substantial hours necessary to tune and tweak the site as well as doing what it takes to keep it available and reliable. Don’t like how he’s doing it? Do it yourself, better. I dare ya.
I’m going to have to start covering the Dog’s work now that his reach is a little shorter, though. It’s good stuff, and I like the concept of making sure Americans know exactly who it is they’re dealing with. Even when it’s not prettty, it’s still the truth, and a tough truth we ignore at our own peril.
