Apology To David Berlind

I postscripted an apology to my
critique of
ZDNet’s David Berlind’s complaint
in wanting Google Alerts to offer a blog-specific email alerting service. 
I didn’t want that apology lost in the shuffle, however. Dave Winer
brought me up
after my post for being unnecessarily personal, and he was right. The piece
could have, and should have, been written without such a negative tone. My
sincere apologies for that to David, plus for any suggestion that I somehow was
implying that he couldn’t write a fair piece about Google because of Google’s
policy of not speaking to CNET publications.
