Really Simple Stealing
I heard that line yesterday from Jason Calacanis.
Specifically, I said, via email, "check this out, somebody stole a post from my blog"
Jason replied, via email:
"welcome to my world! people are stealing out stuff every day.... it never ends!
RSS=really simple stealing.
It's pretty obvious to me what's going on. Subscribe to RSS feeds, pump them into Typepad, viola, you've got a blog. Put adsense and some other link farm stuff, and you've got a money machine.
Brad Feld talks how easy it is to do this in his More Feedburner Magic post yesterday.
This is officially now an addition to my Internet Axis of Evil.
