Village Voice: Rise of the Facebook-Killers story is careful to omit links to any external sources. #diaspora #freedombox #ows

Village VoiceThe Village Voice’s online version of this week’s cover story Rise of the Facebook-Killers begins by quoting Eben Moglen’s presentation at ISOC-NY’s Feb 2010 “Freedom in the Cloud: Software Freedom, Privacy and Security for Web 2.0 and Cloud Computing>” event, but omits to mention ISOC-NY or link to the source. It then goes on to detail the subsequent diaspora project and the newly minted Federated General Assembly, without providing links to those either. Meanwhile the article is peppered with internal VV links. Way to engage your readers VV!

While Moglen gets the last word, his own Freedom Box project – which is mounting a major hackfest in NYC this coming weekend – doesn’t even get a mention.
