The fun of Google and Blogs

27 07 2004

Back on June 30, Dave Winer was looking for attribution for a qoute, and I found the sourceThe post that Dave made, referring to it, had the text for that link as “Thanks to Brian Hampson”  It appears that Google gives Dave a high “credibility factor”, or something, and as such, a google search for Brian Hampson now returns the quote and attribution on as the #1 hit.  On that page there is NO reference to my name, nor is there anything to have the reader understand why they are visiting that page when they searched for Brian Hampson.  Google, you’ve been had.

Update 2004-01-06: It FINALLY has let that one go.  Only about 6 months afterwards.
