Guy Kawasaki: 120 day Blogging 'Expert'

I'm beginning to think that I should change the name of this blog to the daily FISKing of Guy Kawasaki.

So-called expert Guy Kawasaki (blogging 120 days and counting... and no, I'm not giving him a link unless he returns the favour) throws us more pearls about how to evangelize huckster our blogs.

It seems that one of his favorite pastimes is to email everyone that has the misfortune to come across his computer. Then again, Guy has his own unique definition of what constitutes spam:
"When I started this blog, I sent out 10,000 email announcements... for example, when a bozo includes you on a large carbon-copy email, mine the addresses."
I rather liked Dave Winer's response the best:
"Disclaim: Scripting News does not meet the high standards of 120-day blogger Guy Kawasaki."
Guy calls it "evangelizing". I call it a pain in the ass.

UPDATE: Better Bad News picks up the ball with "Who Gives a Shiitake". And the blogfather himself Dave Winer liked the post so much that he even linked to it. I'm honoured folks.

Kawasaki can call it what he wants but unsolicited mass emailing for commercial purposes is indeed SPAM. But I can tell you from personal experience that you will never get through to these "hucksters" as you so aptly put it. They are a blight on the blogosphere.

Actually Kawasaki's definition of spam is as follows: "I define "spam" as sending email to someone who has never sent me one." He insists that you should be known by the recipient. Makes sense.
Better read full article.

Makes Sense? Not according to Wikipedia:

"Spamming is commonly defined as the sending of unsolicited bulk e-mail - that is, email that was not asked for (unsolicited) and received by multiple recipients (bulk). A further common definition of spam restricts it to unsolicited commercial e-mail."

Perhaps Kawasaki thinks he is above acceptable net practices?

Nice try.

Kawasaki please note: It makes no difference if the spammer (ie you) is "known by the recipient". The only exception perhaps would be if the email was acquired by an opt-in method and the usage of the email was made clear up-front. Eg., for the purposes of a newsletter. Mining addresses from so-called "bozos" that have carbon-copied you to huckster your wares is not exempt. It is still considered SPAM and the FISK is absolutely right. Maybe you should take a little time to learn the basics in net etiquette before influencing your gullible minions.

Let me start off by saying that Guy Kawasaki is smarter and more successful than Sportsbook I'll ever be, he leverages Twitter like a master, and over the years I've learned a lot from him and his columns.
However. online betting I was recently reading a post from Guy entitled How to Use Twitter as a Twool. There's a bunch of great advice in the post, but I found one piece of advice that I just couldn't swallow: "Get as many followers as you can. I recently explained what I do to get more followers. Ignore people who tell you that it's the quality of your followers not the quantity. They're trying to make friends, not use Twitter as a tool. march madness And, truth be told, there are only two kinds of Twitter users: those that want more followers and those that lie. You can follow me here." Mr. Kawasaki, for the record, my pants are not on fire. Twitter is the Swiss Army knife of communication tools; not everyone needs that big ol' knife to get the job done.

Costa Rica Fishing
Bachmann and the Mujahideen e-Khalq

Costa Rica Fishing and Tours
While I welcome Rep. Michele Bachmann’s presence in the presidential debate, I am agnostic on her candidacy. Certainly, she has a compelling personal story. Because I believe in small government, prioritize individual liberty and freedom, and am libertarian on most social issues, I also sympathize with the Tea Party movement, and I certainly also value a strong national defense. That said, I also believe the science supporting the theory of evolution is compelling and that science, rather than religion, should form the basis of science classes, and so I am somewhat put off by Bachmann’s apparent support of intelligent design.http://costa-ricafishing.com/ When push comes to shove, however, national security is my key issue.

Costa Rica Wedding
I was disappointed, therefore, to see Bachmann’s uncritical support (see 3:25) for the Mujahideen e-Khalq Organization (MKO), which the State Department​ defines as a terror group.Costa Rica Fishing While I agree the human rights abuses perpetrated by the Islamic Republic against MKO members–including the infamous purge of political prisoners–is inexcusable, and I also welcome the debate on whether the MKO is a terrorist group or not (I believe it is), there are certain incontrovertible facts:Costa Rica Fishing and Tours (1) the MKO has targeted Americans in past terrorist attacks; (2) they have embraced Saddam; (3) they operate as a cult which remains hostile to freedom, liberty, and democracy; and (4), they have very little if any support among Iranians in Iran.
