Dave Winer: Eric Rice is a dork. Is that conversational enough for you Eric?
Dave Winer: Hope that’s “conversational” enough for Eric Rice.
Dave Winer: I’m ragging on Eric because when Calacanis was running his campaign on me, trashing my good name, Rice jumped on and scored a few points too
Dave Winer: I really dislike opportunists who join web mobs. Rice is a big offender there. Mr Judgment. Loves to hit a man when he’s down
Dave Winer: We have a word for that where I come from: Coward.
Colby Palmer: @davewiner -don’t get me wrong Dave- <3 your brilliant work…but maybe piling more trash on the heap doesn’t add gloss to a “good name”?
Dave Winer: @colbyworld, are you a PR person? because only PR people worry about stuff like that. some of us are just people, and aren’t image-obsessed
Colby Palmer: @davewiner No, and with respect, I don’t want to flame. I’m just sick of the sniping/infighting. I’d rather see advances of real thought.
Colby Palmer: @davewiner This includes @spin and @jasoncalacanis…not to single you out, but your “good name/eric rice is a dork” rant was hypocritical.
I’m not sure I’m on board with “hypocritical”, but it sure was something. I must have missed it, but what did Rice do, exactly? Besides not getting enough of his digital slobber on Dave’s electronic knob, I mean.
