There’s this piece in Boston.com (an operation of the Boston Globe) today, entitled Blogs ‘essential’ to a good career. It says that “Dervala Hanley writes a quirky literary blog that got her a job is at Stone Yamashita Partners”, but it doesn’t link to Dervala’s space or to her employer. Then it adds “‘Decision-makers respect Google-karma,’ writes Tim Bray, director of Web technologies for Sun Microsystems.” It does link to Sun but not to ongoing; interestingly, that remark about Google was from the follow-up to my original Ten Reasons Why Blogging is Good For Your Career, probably the most-read fragment in the history of ongoing, even if it was whipped off in 15 minutes while watching TV. This feels unprofessional to me. [Update: The Boston.com article has links now.]
