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:

Iain's new 'top secret' design

(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.)

As you can see from this screenshot (the original can be seen for a limited time here), Iain plans to introduce and/or display a prominent set of rules (that Iain may or may not follow himself).

Also, last night Iain said the following regarding his status as an ‘expert’:

“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’…
