ps. My french is bad bad… go easy on me ?
anyway Allan Jenkins has a rather interesting post about mobitype here and it looks like they are taking his content ( of his blog without his accept) and puts it on their mobiserver for their users to download (for free).. for mobitypes commercial gain
Lee Hopkins was the person who scooped this when he did an egosearch for himself at technorati (don’t worry Lee, we all do it *s*)
again, as we have seen before , social software is indeed not that social – they often forget to ask people the right questions… I mean – all they need was Allan’s accept to publish it, and if he didn’t give it: DON’T PUBLISH.. I doubt that they will get his accept now…
anyway.. as always I can’t put my finger on it, but as before, this is completely unacceptable behaviour of an ” open social software company”.. and interesting enough.. LÃ¶ic Le meur is the chairman of the board of directors.
I mean – yeah the blogosphere is an OPEN place, but it should have ethics, especially evolving companies using every inch they can for commercial gain.. if you putted me ( and my blog is a part of me) in an ugly design and on a cellphone, hell I would have liked to know… so would Allan. Does Hugh know he’s on there – in ugly design with no reference to gapingvoid.com?
let’s see what happens next, I think a big fat apology is coming up, and a ” communication error in the staff” – isn’t it the things company’s do when they piss people off ?
