It's time for our weekly Marqui post. Marqui is the software company that's paying me and some others to mention them and link to their product demo once a week on our blogs. For that, they pay us good money. And we can say whatever we want about them.

This makes two and a half months of Marqui shilling, and we're fast coming near the end of our three-month contract. Apparently, the exposure Marqui has gotten for its pay-to-blog program has been satisfying -- they let us know this week that they're planning to continue the program for the foreseeable future.

As we re-up, though, our blogging commitment (and pay) will be cut back some. I'm not sure how I feel about that, but it's been fun so far, and so I'm thinking, what the hey, let's go forward with these folks if they formally ask me to. They've been nice enough to put me on a panel at this upcoming event, and although a few readers have squawked, I don't think any real damage has come from my Marqui posts so far.

Just wondering if anyone knows of a website or blog dedicated to critiquing the big O; if not any ideas on effective places to do some detailed lambasting would be appreciated. That crowd gets away with all manner of ethical and journalistic abuses in the name of protecting friends who sometimes turn out not to have been worth protecting. It turns decent reporters into butter.

Portland Communique is probably your best choice. They do a good job of going after the O. I also do it on my blog http://www.newframes.typepad.com I even have a special category for the O. Communique, though, is way more on it than I am.


Thanks, Sid. Those look really good.
