The Chrome Stupidity Continues

The Google Chrome hype train is chugging along at full speed.

Although I’ve ditched , a reader of The Drama 2.0 Show this morning sent me an email imploring me to look at tech|ticker commentator .

Like TechCrunch’s Michael Arrington, Blodget thinks Chrome is big. Real big.

Certainly it’s a browser. It’s going to sit beside the other icons. It sounds like it has a bunch of cool features. It’s totally designed for web applications and things.

Chrome Hype: When Non-Techies Blog About Technology

One of the things that has amused me about the technology blogosphere is the fact that some of its most popular A-listers and B-listers aren’t even legitimate “techies.”

From the misuse of terminology to downright mischaracterizations and misinterpretations, the technology blogosphere has no shortage of technology enthusiasts masquerading as technology experts.

TechCrunch’s Michael Arrington is the perfect example of this.

Arrington has a bachelor’s degree in economics and a law degree from Stanford. He was a corporate attorney in Silicon Valley at O’Melveny & Myers and Wilson Sonsini where he was primarily involved in financing and securities-related tasks for technology startups.

More Evidence Blogging is a Tough Business

Profy was one of the few technology blogs that I still perused on a fairly regular basis. The reason? I always felt that Profy’s Cyndy Aleo-Carriera did a good job at keeping track of the latest happenings in the tech blogosphere (something which I have little interest in doing these days) and filtering out what isn’t important or interesting.

So it was with some surprise that I learned that Profy’s bloggers, Cyndy Aleo-Carriera, Leslie Poston and Triston McIntyre, have all resigned. Aleo-Carriera has moved on to The Industry Standard and Poston and McIntryre have moved on to Tech Blorge and UptownUncorked.

Question: which of the following headlines does not belong in the list?

If you selected “Julia Allison’s Real Test,” you are smarter than the people making decisions at Yahoo Finance.
