I've just written to the site/author of 'the top-100 edu-blog' list to have mine removed -- effectively immediately. Additionally, if he can't/won't remove it, I've asked him to add a disclaimer that I've made the request.
If you're not sure what I'm referring to, please read Miguel's post (2nd of 2) that gets into the ironic nature of publicity -- good or bad -- or the fine reseach/analysis/thinking of Darren, John, Stephanie, Dean and others who also tackled this odd affair.
What really p---es me off is that top-notch educators working their tails off -- some of them my friends and mentors -- who rarely get credit from the outside world were given a false pat on the back by a less-than-transparent 'bid' for their links. The list was pure business. Link logorithms with a touch of press release antics thrown in. Gimmick. Beyond that, little.
Hopefully the links to his site will go away soon. And these educators can get the credit they ultimately deserve. In the right way. For the right reasons. Without good people having to work this hard at background-checking (although there is a good lesson there, somewhere, citation fans!).
