Last week, they finally replaced him with new CEO & President, Richard Jalichandra. He comes with a ringing endorsement from Sifry, who is still head of Technorati’s board of directors.

DMOZ Mob Strikes Again

This weekend I was reading about Shoemoney being extorted by a DMOZ editor. I thought: heck, I’m a DMOZ editor, I don’t want to be associated with stuff like that, let’s see if I can do anything to help.

Shoemoney’s Jeremy Schoemaker had posted about flaws in MyBlogLog’s service, and when he demonstrated how someone could easily pose as another MyBlogLog user when visiting other websites, he was banned from MyBlogLog.
