Comments: Michael Gorman "Revenge of the Blog People!" quote sources

Hey Seth,

Thanks for posting this and sharing it over at Web4Lib. I too had checked Feedster for the "idiot" quote, but, silly me, never drew the conclusion that Mr. Gorman wasn't using an exact quote (all too obvious in retrospect). Thus my phrase searches went unfulfilled. Nice work!

I'm surprised that Mr. Gorman, if this is indeed the correct reference, didn't take the opportunity to point out that the author also misrepresented his current status as President-elect.

I, too, did some searching for those quotes, and hats off to a winning strategy. Feedster didn't find it because my phrasing was not parsed correctly; I got close on antidigital, but didn't try the hyphenated version, mea culpa.
Appreciate the overview nice post on the event. I'm in the camp of I blog, it ain't great writing, it's an online diary, read it or don't, and so on. I also do read "real" writing, and books. I believe we (people and librarians) can do both...
