Ten Things That Really Really Annoy Me (and a lot of other people)

Who'll Technorati Go To?

In no particular order:

  1. Blog [content] Plagiarism. Why the lack of creativity?
  2. Spam. E-mail or blog, it’s still spam. Please, leave us alone.
  3. Web 2.0. Hype or truth, what difference does it make? Argue about something else.
  4. Piracy. Either let us download it by paying you or don’t shutdown Torrent trackers.
  5. Broadband. Why can’t we learn something from Korea?
  6. Windows-Mac file cross-compatibility [.exe, .dmg]. Anyone smart enough?
  7. DRM/Rootkits. I will repeat #3. Please, leave us alone.
  8. Web 2.0 startups. I agree some do cool things, but that’s another bubble that’s gonna burst.
  9. Convergence. Oh, please. Don’t talk about it. Do it.
  10. Piracy lawsuits. Don’t idiotically threaten people. Don’t sue the 8-year-old who downloaded “gangster rap” at 4:30am. Shutdown these people.

I hope I’ve made my point across. No, I didn’t carefully optimise this post so it’s digg compatible. I really mean what I said. Now, let’s just start making each item on this list history so people like me can have a good night’s sleep.

Feeling much better already.
