Here’s a hint for all developers of weblogs; turn off your pings during the dev process if you don’t want to start turning up in Technorati:
(Actually, checking Technorati for responses to the dev address itself, I notice that this isn’t quite an exclusive… but, hey, that never stopped Iain before.)

“I do not portray myself as an expert on blogging. If others think I know a lot about it and invite me to speak to them, it’s hardly a crime is it.”
And yet the new design clearly shows that a primary page is planned to tout his services as a speaker. Presumably so punters may be aided in their accidental arrival at the conclusion that he knows what he’s talking about.
Finally, just before I get back to my SOCPA submission, I’d like to suggest that if Iain Dale is going to continue to enforce a ‘no links to Bloggerheads’ rule, then this rule should be listed along with all the others. Perhaps under the heading ‘Double Secret Probation’…
