Internet Ironies


I thought it was kind of funny when the head architect of social site Twitter, hugely under fire for failing to scale up the application properly as it grew, was giving a talk at the ongoing Web 2.0 Conference about scaling up big websites.

But today’s news that Jeff Pulver of PulverMedia has resigned…..from PulverMedia, has got to be one of the best examples of the crazily ironic internet world.    It’s also annoying that prominent bloggers are now often kept from writing about their own stories by complex contractual obligations they take on when going big time.   It’s enough to make you abandon all those silly A list bloggers for …. good old fashioned regular guy and gal bloggers.

I wonder if he’ll start up a new company and if so what you gonna call it?    NotPulverMedia.com?
