Fuck you lah - G.E.E.K.
It's a geek thing
Fuck you lah
Fucking arrogant assholes. That's mostly to Cowboy Caleb, by the way, for coming up with the most arrogant and fucked up entry in the history of blogging. Who died and made this guy Supreme Dictator? Just because I choose not to password protect my entries, it means that some stupid useless site like Tomorrow can fucking link me without my permission? Well FUCK YOU. You're causing many great bloggers like mrsbudak and RiceAndSoup to consider troubling themselves to move to password-only entries, just because some of the brainless editors at Tomorrow.sg have taken it upon themselves to dictate how we should manage our blogs.

Not forgetting a big FUCK YOU to the hordes of mindless sycophants who will no doubt be flocking here to defend their beloved blog celebrities, who they probably don't even know in real life. Why? Cannot make friends in real life, so need a lot of virtual friends is it?

A more appropriate alternative analogy to cowboy's would be: just because one's address/tel number is listed openly in the phone directory doesn't mean that it's right to publicise it in order that a mass of strangers descends upon your home with insulting messages and verbal harassment. Some of the editors seem unable to discern the improprietry of showcasing writings of a highly personal nature, which would inevitably be disrupted (or destroyed) by highlighting it to an audience of cyber lynch-mobs who appoint themselves as judge, jury and executioner of some poor individual based on a few isolated entries (it doesn't help that many of these people are unable to recognise irony, parody and self-disparaging mockery, mistaking it for outright bigotry or political incorrectness). They may have the 'right' to publicise noteworthy blogs, but their apparent unwillingness to take responsbility for the consequences of their editorial decisions does little to their credit as supposed promoters of blogs and an open-minded approach to cyberspace. The result could well be self-censorship by bloggers wary of being tomorrowed, a growing withdrawal from blogging by individuals whose private, uncensored thoughts might be deemed 'unacceptable' and ultimately the creation of a facade monopolised by hitwhores and self-annointed pundits.

I guess I won't try and oppose the tomorrow.sg editors (maybe backed by gahmen leh?) so I'll rather just lock my entries up and keep them private. But I think they are going a bit too far if they really just disregard the TOMORROW NOT FREE request that some bloggers put up. At least they should show some consideration.

Of course we will! That's the point right

... That's when bloggers decide to prevent people from linking to their blogs altogether. It's possible you know. =D

i have to agree with you. among the editors, cowboy caleb is the most hopeless piece of shit. followed closely by j seng of course.

I think it might cause you the circle of links and is better to ask then post someone contact or address.. I do not know who right or wrong but there one thing i know to ask 1st!!

Frankly, I'm very disappointed that a few people I know personally (actually, I suspect I know you geekgeek personally) would take the position that linking is an act that requires permission. Google creates a million links without permission a day. Icerocket and Technorati link to numerous very personal blogs on a daily basis, and Blogger and livejournal give them the permission to do so - which means you can just type any salacious phrase into their search blogs function to find very personal information. Even livejournal, the blogging tool with the most privacy functions, clearly lets you add people as friends without asking their permission or letting them change that fact, which means once you click on your "friends" button all their posts are there to see.

Of course, I agree that posting an e-mail address or phone number is wrong, as is communicating any information about someone else that cannot be found in the public sphere, or revealing something that was password-protected. But posting a link to a site that one can find on Google, via the Navbar on Blogspot, or on Technorati / Icerocket - please.

Since Google has a higher readership and more potent global reach than Tomorrow, it is even more immoral in linking to blogs and websites without permission!

I can see where the both of you are coming from. However, this is where I'm coming from.

Google is a search engine. When one uses a search engine, one is not necessarily looking for a personal blog of say, Mr X. Google does not specifically list out every single blog that it has archived, when you do a search, only pages that have been crawled by Google's spiders and bots will show up, hence if word "Y" does that one searches for does not show up on Mr X's blog, then Mr X's blog will not show up. In the billions of webpages that are stored in Google's cache, the chance of 1 person finding a specific blog of Mr X if he/she does not know what are the contents of Mr X's blog, are probably roughly the same as the probability of a monkey banging away at a keyboard typing out the complete works of Shakespeare.

Tomorrow.sg works differently. It is a site that one goes to specifically to look for blogs, and the function of Tomorrow.sg appears to be that of publishing blogs that are somehow connected to Singapore. By weeding out all the chaff (i.e. websites that are not blogs), you significantly increase the probability that a particular blog in Singapore will be found and highlighted. Moreover, one does not need to do a search on Tomorrow, one could simply browse the site and come across a particular blog of Mr X.

Daryl, while it is true that you can add "friends" in LJ without the other person consenting, the reverse is not, i.e you can only see locked entries of "friends" if they have added you to (implicitly, this could be taken as the author of the blog giving "permission"). However, I do not think LJ users are at risk, nor are tech savvy users, however, much as we might like to think that this world has been totally geekified, the truth is there are more people out there who are only just learning about the Internet, than there are people who can code entire websites in one day, and frighteningly, they are the ones who stand to lose the most.

Won't typing: +blog +singapore into Google do the same?
From: sieteocho Date: September 4th, 2005 09:44 am (UTC) (Link)
Somehow allowing your blog to be searched by Google does not make the readership of your blog shoot up as much as being tomorrowed does. You look at the practical outcome of the linking.
mrsbudak From: mrsbudak Date: September 4th, 2005 11:58 pm (UTC) (Link)
Google doesn't "link"; Google is a search engine that throws up results from searches. If you don't know what you're searching for, well, you can't really find anything. You may "come across" blogs but they may not be what you are looking for.

Tomorrow.sg, on the other hand, is a blog aggregator. Thus, it draws targeted attention to specific blogs or posts by linking to them. People go to Tomorrow.sg to see what blogs are featured since, presumably, these blogs have some interesting features about them.

Only blogs that are approved by 2 Tomorrow.sg editors are posted on Tomorrow.sg. Their editorial decisions decide what goes on Tomorrow.sg. This doesn't happen in search engines like Google.

Anyways I read the entry u linked up, his analogy was kinda ~ah hem~ childish. I guess everyone has got different opinion over this whole tomorow sg saga.
But asking bloggers (who dont wished to be on tmr) to password protect their entries is kinda too much. Cos they are assuming that everyone knows how to do that sort of thing.
What i cant swallow is that cockiness in them while trying to prove their point.
Whatever it is just cool it.
