Ok, so I’m in the process of setting up this site. I thought, ha, even Josie has a blog. So, for the times when content on my own site is few and far between (like…err…now), I should just syndicate her blog, so I’ll be cool by association. Well, her blog provider, some site called getcrafty, decides that their users can’t let others syndicate their stuff. Like they own her view on life, and all that she wrote. As the title suggests, proprietary=bad.
This reminds of when Yonni’s (Josie’s sister’s) blog just went belly-up and they charged her $35 for just letting her download her own posts. (Josie: If you’re reading this, consider yourself invited to blog here. You’ll get your own site to mess with.)
