What do the people listed below want from my blog readers?
Answer is simple: Attention.
In fact, they want “attention” desperately.
I took a snapshot of the part of the day (May 16, 2007) and observed the trackback entries waiting for approval. While all the names look legitimate, none of them are real blogs. All the trackbacks point to products of companies that are seeking attention desperately.
I feel sad for these companies who are trying to get the attention of people in any which way they can. Rather than “interrupt” rudely in people’s lives, why not build products that people “love”? When people “love” your products, they will talk about it – and they will do it for free
