Technorati is a machine, Gary Angel is a man …
Last night in Tokyo I was griping about how there is very little open debate and disagreement in the web analytics blogging community and how interesting I found the response to my post about Technorati being a poor source of data for any blog ranking methodology.
Then I read Gary Angel’s post “Never Send a Machine to do a Man’s Job” …
I fully retract any complaint about a lack of debate and disagreement, especially the disagreement part. And while I appreciate Gary’s sentiment a great deal, I’m almost more interested in seeing what everyone else thinks about his post. Gary doesn’t pull any punches.
Anyway, thanks again to everyone who commented on the Technorati study. It was a nice reminder about how many great, bright, and thoughtful people read this blog all around the world!
