Neil Turner's Blog

Blogging about technology and randomness since 2002

Testing a theory

I just bought 800 free shares in AbsoBlogginLutely. My theory is that by linking to him again his share price may go up and thus my portfolio should improve too :).
I’m already cashing in on the news that Chris Pirillo is no longer at TechTV – I originally bought 5 shares at $14.13/share and now they’re worth $38.09 each :-D.
Something tells me that BlogShares is going to have a major effect on the world of blogging as we know it. Whether it’ll be good or bad I don’t know, but I’m a little worried that people will now send pointless trackback pings to highly-valued blogs just to try and boost their share prices, or do what I’m doing… 😮
Actually, Andy does often post some quite interesting things, so you may well like to check his blog out more often. Several of my posts have been reposts of stuff I’ve read on his blog.
And finally, this post is coming to you from Mozilla 1.3 on my Mandrake 9.0 partition. I thought I’d check it out for a bit.

One Comment

  1. Thanks for the comments Neil, although I hope it wasn’t a “pointless exercise in increasing the share price :-)” You’ve got the link wrong though, with an extra quote . Have you also tried Newzcrawler for a RSS reader?
