Comments: Tonight: "Email -- Should the Sender Pay?": EFF Fundraiser, Debate Between Esther Dyson and Danny O'Brien

Hi, Mary -

I hope you don't mind a driveby comment. I was doing some Technorati research to try to figure out how rankism factors into the social media conversation, and it seems to me that you were the one who got the ball rolling on that. I then used Technorati's authority slider to get different views on the posts. According to Technorati, your blog has "a lot of authority". I thought you'd get a kick out of the irony of that.

I'm not sure if you're aware that Robert Fuller, the person who coined the idea of "rankism", lives in Berkeley. He doesn't wade that deeply into social media issues, but it's pretty easy to strike up a conversation with him if you're ever curious about his general ideas about overcoming rankism.

Ps. I originally posted this comment on an ancient archived article. In my creative view of the world, I'm declaring this remark relevant to Esther Dyson:
