You just can't trust the interweb

You can almost hear the internal anguish in Micro-Soft's clogmeister Robert 'The Scobleizer' Scoble's post on salesforce.com's recent service outages.

Here's what is happening inside his brain as he writes:

"Salesforce is the enemy. Must criticise."
"Can't sound too obvious, though. I'm trying to look impartial."
"If I don't look impartial, I'll lose my credibility. Yikes!"
"But hang on, Salesforce relies on Internet application delivery. That's a bit like our new stuff!"
"But Salesforce is the enemy. Oh no. Must criticise on-demand software model."
"Oh dear, we've just launched on-demand CRM!"
"Crumbs, this is a tricky one. I know, I'll try and be diplomatic."
"Must kill Salesforce must kill Salesforce must kill Salesforce."
"Who said that?"
"Must kill Salesforce must kill Salesforce must kill Salesforce."
"Stop it. Who are you, anyway?"
"I'm a member of Microsoft Corporate Marketing department. I live in your brain."
"Get out! Get out! I'm a free man! I blog what I like!"
"Yeah, right. We own you. Just do it, sonny."
"But I don't want to. It'll be so obvious!"
"So? Just tell people you don't like 'the rush to the web for everything'."
"What? Are you insane? I'm a GEEK. I love the rush to the web. I rush to the web. For everything. People will suss me straight away."
"Just do it. Or you're fired."
"Oh. OK."

Brilliant. It's just like what politicians go through in every speach they give. Only blogging has an easily searchable historical record, making hypocrisy easy to uncover.

Damn right.

When politicians say stuff, they've got the press to keep an eye on them. When cloggers do it, they've get ME.
