Kair Byron imitation (or theft) equals flattery, right?

So, Ruth was looking at Technorati.com, which is a search engine of blogs. And she wondered what kind of Kari Byron results she'd find there.

She found some. Mine. Or my writing, at least. But rather than the "educating eric" blog as the author, it was someone else!

At least this guy's blog lists mine as the "source". Sweet. But, basically, he's got some sort of computer doing an automated copy-paste of others' content into his blog, with the hopes that others will click on his blog and then click his AdSense links.

Fortunately, since my goal is to "support learning" and not to "get rich on the backs of others", it doesn't bother me... but it's an interesting feeling! You know you're popular when you're being ripped off!

(BTW, I'm not going to link directly to his blog, becuase I don't want you going there and clicking on his ads... but you can find him pretty easily. Start with a search for "Kari Byron"...)

UPDATE (June 2006): I've moved all my Kari Byron commentary over to a different site; you're welcome to browse around here... but for anything new, check out the Kari Byron category on att.ention.net.
