Andrew Keen is the author of The Cult of the Amateur, a book that takes a very critical view of Web 2.0 technologies.
In the article titled Blogged Down in this month's Entrepreneur Magazine, Keen describes how blogging is destroying big brands in the marketplace.
The article mentions a "damaging crusade" against Dell Computer by blogger Jeff Jarvis. The article then quotes Keen on ways to protect yourself: "don't allow anyone to post on your site anonymously."
Um...gee, Andrew. Jarvis published under his real name on his own blog. If Dell wasn't letting anyone publish anonymously on their blog, it wouldn't have made a bit of difference.
Give the article a read. It's short.
Also check out the reviews of his book on Amazon. This may be the first time I've seen a bestselling book rate 2.5 stars. If you look carefully, you will find my review of the book, which isn't complimentary.
