Well — or great minds think alike, either way, I’m thrilled!
Wired News, one of my favorite tech websites, had a post yesterday on the Best Blogfights of 2006 (via Steve Rubel) which seems a close adaptation of two posts I wrote last year:
Top 5 Blogosphere Smackdowns – July 06
Blogosphere Smackdown – Aug 06
The Wired News Top 5 and Marketing Nirvana’s Top 5 had two smackdowns in common:
1. Contenders: Amanda Congdon vs. Andrew Baron
2. Contenders: Jason Calacanis (Netscape) vs. Kevin Rose (Digg)
Here are the remaining 4 smackdowns from Marketing Nirvana that Michael Calore from Wired missed:
3. The LongTail Smackdown
Contenders: Lee Gomes (WSJ) vs. Chris Anderson (Wired)
4. The “Web 2.0″ Smackdown
Contenders: O’Reilly vs. Tom Raftrey
5. The Web Journalism Smackdown
Contenders: Robert Scoble vs. “The Irritant Journalist“
6. The Business Week Smackdown
Contenders: Journalists vs. Bloggers
Click on the title links above to view the Techmeme Discussions surrounding the fight/smackdown and click on the individual contenders to see what they had to say.
Steve Rubel calls for a ceasefire to such petty politics and John Koetsier equates the blogosphere w/ high-school, but then c’mon, aren’t we allowed a few guilty pleasures.
My favorite web fight will be a toss-up between the O’Reilly fight and the Scoble fight. Scoble’s quote alone is priceless!
Which of the above smackdowns did you enjoy the most and why?
