This piece recently aired at MSNBC, which included quotes from Kyle Monson from PC Magazine.
Web domain taken? Sowhatsleft.com?
Mr. Moson essentially states that all domainers are cybersquatters. This parked considerable debate on Mr. Moson's blog at a post Cybersquatting Versus Domain Speculating. The likes of Frank Michlick, Elliot Silver and Dominik Mueller all posted comments attempting to correct the record. It is interesting that PC Magazine would hire someone to report on tech issues, with so little background and understanding of tech issue. Even Mr Monson's bio admits as much.
is an Associate Editor at PC Magazine, and the owner of the fevered mind from whence AppScout sprang. Kyle is not a geek by blood-he got heavily into technology only when he joined PC Mag in 2004. So if he writes dumb things sometimes, please make sure you let him know by leaving a comment on the blog and e-mailing him personally.
The problem of course is that PC Magazine essentially lends credibility to a globally released report/video through the NBC and MSN news channels, despite the fact that this particular person clearly did not have the background to even form an intelligent, let alone credible, option about domain name, and domain dispute, issues.
