"Folks I Mentor"

Stefan Tilkov,

This is fascinating: I have made it to James McGovern’s blogroll, under the friendly heading “folks I mentor”. (With DHH, Obie and James Robertson, I feel in good company.) Whatever you think of him, his arrogance his impressive :-)

James is a self-proclaimed “though leader”. I recall having linked to him once before, but have since refrained from it, mostly because I found all of his writing to be too ignorant to be worthy of being mentioned.

Having DHH on that list is funny on so many levels…

That reminds me… must remember to put James Gosling on the list of folks I mentor….

Simply attempting to add lesser-known bloggers to my blogroll as a call to action by Couldn’t think of a category name so I simply put this as a placeholder.

Please do not encourage others to amplify this, as folks will get it twisted…

Lesser-known bloggers such as David Heinemeier Hansson, whose blog outranks yours at Technorati by about 24000 places?
