I just dropped into my twitter page to see if my friend added me as a friend as any good friend should do, and all I could see was Robert Scoble smiling face, repeated like endlessly. Man, I like you (actually I want to replace you at the top of wordpress rankings…) but gimme a break! Do you have a job? A family? You’re going to have another child, dude! Don’t just sit there twittering the world!

BTW, how dare you complain that twitter is slow when you are slowing it down??? You posted 21 times during the last 8 hours, that adds up to over 22,000 posts a year! You’re worried what happens in case of an earthquake? Twitter owners should be afraid if you take a day off from work!


I’ve been told the single most important thing to become an A-Lister is getting incoming links. Of course, to get links people must know you, and one of the most important things to get noticed is claiming your blog on Technorati. Now I know Technorati is falling behind to Google Blog Search these days, so my first choice was to claim my blog on the latter. You know, I like to be on the upcoming trend side… Too bad I couldn’t find a way to claim it there so I got back to Technorati. Anyway I guess this is enough to put a “google” tag on this post, so hopefully it won’t turn out to be a total waste of time.

As I was saying, I found out I had to post some code to get it done, so here it is! Technorati Profile [note to self: looks like showing some code knowledge is regarded as a good thing even when you don’t know what the heck you’re talking about]

Scoble missing?

March 11, 2007

What’s wrong with Scoble? Why isn’t he posting? His last post is from a couple of days ago and he doesn’t get 2 days off blogging since 1975
Does it mean he lost his ability to use a keyboard? Maybe I’m already ahead of the plan. Maybe I can fill the void left by Scoble to…

Oh no, everything is ok, I spotted him on Twitter. Er… Of course I’m happy! Just kidding dude…

Well so what? I have a Twitter account too! Ok he has 1037 more friends than me (my only friend is.. er.. Scoble) but – hey – this is just the beginning!

Feel free to add me as a friend on Twitter, let Scoble feel the wisdom (?) of the crowd!

Hi, my name is Simone Rizzo, I’m from Italy and I want to be an A-lister. You know, the kind of blogger that can single handedly change the fortune of a company if that day he woke up in a bad mood. I mean the Scobles, Jarvis’, Arringtons, Rubels, Macleods, Searls’ (that accidentally doesn’t seem to be as prone to killing companies as the others.. Doc, what’s wrong with you??? Go kill some companies!!!) type of guy.

I’ll do just about anything to become an A-lister.

Please note there’s a just about ahead of anything up there. If you’re not sure how far I can go, feel free to ask.

I’m aware that to get there I’ll have to be linked by the big guys. And to get links from the big guys, I have to get links from the mid guys. And to get links from the mid guys, I have to get links from you bunch of crap that are reading this.
[note to self: try avoiding using “bunch of crap” for the people you want to get links from in the future. We’re building up a community here, dork! You can still use “bunch of crap” for those who don’t want to link]
Yeah, and this can benefit you too! Because the more links I get, the more traffic, and the more traffic, the more valuable your link to my blog will be! This way your blog will get tons of hot chicks (feel free to change the word chick to anything you like, just remember to put the final “s” because there will be a LOT of the crap you want!) willing to do anything to be linked by you. And I know you like linking…

But there’s more. What happens when an A-lister wannabe actually BECOMES AN A-LISTER?
People, you want to know this…

Of course you might ask: why you and not me? Well, first because I had the idea while you were just sitting down in your couch watching your damn TV, and second because you don’t get to see many italian A-listers around, and I may be one while you can’t. Unless, of course, you’re italian too. In that case go back to the first reason.

Hello world!
