Conflicts of Interest
Over at Techcrunch, Michael Arrington takes on Jason Calacanis over his accusations of conflicts of interest. Arrington makes it clear that he does not accept money for reviews, and never will.
Later in the day, Calacanis responds, disclosing his own conflicts of interest.
Dave Winer and others comment on Techcrunch in the comments.
I think it’s important for bloggers, especially those that are reviewing products, to disclose their conflcts of interest. We have ours publicly posted as well.
