Scobleizer: Gillmor says Microsoft not dominant in conversation anymore

ZDNet’s Steve Gillmor has been studying me pretty well lately. I’m impressed. Imagine if we had an RSS aggregator that worked that way. Imagine if it said “hey, I noticed that you’ve been linking to a lot of Sun Microsystems’ stuff lately, would you like me to build a search query for Sun Microsystems?”
To the meat of his point, Steve says “Microsoft has lost its dominant ownership of the conversation.”

I answered: ” why does Microsoft have to be the dominant conversationalist? Isn’t that unhealthy for the marketplace? Even though I’m partisan toward Microsoft’s interests (hey, they did give me stock when I started work here) I think it’s far healthier for the world to have a variety of voices all trying to make people’s lives better.”

There always seems to be a stick to beat Microsoft when someone needs one. To my opinion Robert always tries to see things from different perspectives. Mr. Gillmor aparently makes a study out of this. Does he think dominance is a good or a bad thing, I don’t know. I think he always needs an excuse to write about Microsoft in his own ‘objective way’.
