Unlikely Members of Triberr – @HuffingtonPost and @Forbes

The first shot’s been fired. The have-nots of the Blogosphere have a hero, and its name is Triberr.

Make no mistake, this is a revolt. And you’ve been lied to.

You’ve been told that the Internet has democratized our voice. That everyone has equal say, and that everyone can reach a wide audience. THIS IS A LIE!

Big Media properties like Huffington Post, Forbes, Mashable, NYTimes, Gawker, and the rest, command disproportionate amounts of Attention from the Blogosphere. They control the message.

Triberr is the weapon that gives small voices a megaphone.

But we’ve been infiltrated!

The Writing Slave Class of the Big Media properties is using Triberr to amplify its posts.

For a long time now, I’ve been quiet about this, but I think it’s time to talk about it. Triberr is amplifying the voice of the enemy.

What Should We Do?

  • Should we forbid the Writing Slave Class from using Triberr?
  • Should we outlaw Big Media feeds?

It’s a difficult question and I need your help in answering it.

Here is the sitch as I see it.

If we forbid the Writing Slave Class -who are essentially pawns in this war for Attention- from using Triberr, they may never become rooks. This goes against the basic value of Triberr.

Can we exclude someone simply because they chose to write for the enemy?

The system that gives small bloggers a bigger voice has been built. My job now -as I see it- is to ensure the system itself doesn’t become corrupt and in service of the old -or new- power class.

How do I do that?

    I see your point Dino… I would be torn too. But as both gentlemen commenters aptly stated, you are attracting the big boys, nothing you can do about that. In light of our tribe members, I know we’ve always played nice on the playground. We don’t mind sharing the goods, as long as there is an even playing field. Imho that’s what Triberr does, it evens the playing field.

      Im glad to hear you say that. It seams -at least the ones who are commenting- all feel the same way.

    Let them stay! They found a great service that they feel they need. I’m okay with that! Hopefully it will go both ways and/or bring more active users to Triberr.
