Winer Goes Full-Hypocrite on Sexism

Mon, 30 Sep 2013 00:44:27 +0000

Dave’s latest round of tone-deaf sexism follows a predictable script: first, make a broad generalization about a wide range of people with zero substantiation: Online feminist discourse: putdowns, lectures, name-calling and taunts. — Dave Winer ☮ (@davewiner) September 27, 2013 Next, when called on it, go into victim mode: @Sharoney — why not treat me […]

Dave Gets Defensive Over Ageism

Tue, 31 Aug 2010 04:39:58 +0000

Dave’s heart fluttered when he saw that his bogus post on ageism had made it onto ycombinator, but then couldn’t contain himself when he was called “grumpy” (which I think is actually rather charitable) so he had to chime in, with one of his ironically named handles. Hey it’s not the companies that push this […]

Ageism: Dave’s Latest Excuse

Sat, 28 Aug 2010 22:31:27 +0000

It might just be me, but it seems that Dave’s posts lately have had an increasing number of claims of ageism. It seems that any time he gets snubbed, his immediate reaction is that it’s on account of his age. I’m sure that, sometimes, it is. Most of the time, however, it appears that it […]

Dave Teaches You About Statistics

Tue, 22 Sep 2009 16:50:25 +0000

Dave is still crusading over his exclusion from the Twitter SUL. Today, Dave would like to teach you about a few different statistical concepts: It’s pretty clear something happened in July. We know this much — TechCrunch was dropped from the Suggested User List, right around the time their follower count started heading down. As […]

Dave Admits Hypocrisy

Wed, 09 Sep 2009 21:31:29 +0000

Today he admits that he’s a hypocrite. Turns out that River2 ships with its own, hand-picked SUL. Am I A Hypocrite? Sure. Of course. I am a totally f*cked up human being. Of course, he only admits that because it’s easier than admitting that he doesn’t like the Twitter SUL only because he’s not on […]

Dave Really Hates SULs

Tue, 08 Sep 2009 14:15:12 +0000

We’ve been saying for quite some time that Dave doesn’t have a principled objection to Twitter’s Suggested User’s List and that his only real complaint is that he’s not on it. We got an email today which lends a lot of credibility to that. Imagine there is another Twitter-like service out there that had a […]

What’s An Asshole?

Wed, 26 Aug 2009 13:18:57 +0000

Dave thinks saying Obama is like Hitler makes someone an asshole. That might be true, but I’d like to propose an additional or alternate definition. An asshole, is someone who thinks that people who say things that offend them should be tortured and killed. These people are so stupid they need to be slapped in […]

Dave Re-Debates Lessig and Re-Loses

Tue, 25 Aug 2009 17:37:31 +0000

Dave stirred up an old debate with one of the titans of intellectual property law. Still believing he got the better of Larry Lessig, he links to an old post in which his course of action is to call Lessig’s analogy (comparing source code to published novels) flawed, and then create a number of analogies […]

Dave ‘Fixes’ The SUL Problem

Mon, 24 Aug 2009 13:52:15 +0000

I got an email back in July pointing me to a particularly idiotic post of Dave’s as he searches for a solution to the “problem” that is the Suggested Users List. He has several recommendations, but he leads off with the most entertaining among them. First, he proposes a 30 day limit for time spent […]

A Little EOW Navel-gazing

Mon, 24 Aug 2009 04:48:49 +0000

Note: ssues, both personal and professional, required a bit of a break from most blogging and then there was a bit of procrastination on account of the the sheer mountain of Winer-bullshit-backlog that just could not go un-commented upon. Many thanks to BSM for picking up the slack in the interim. BSM’s last post (regarding […]
