Rivera: Bad writers complain that Techmeme doesn’t link to their stories

This Week in Tech
A lot of people ask Gabe Rivera why Techmeme doesn’t link to their stories, he tells Leo Laporte and Sarah Lane. “A lot of it is just bad writers who haven’t come to terms with their being bad,” he says. He used to ignore such complaints; now “I actually enjoy some of the complaining.” Rivera recently explained what gets a story linked on Techmeme and what doesn’t. How to get linked: Break a big story. How to be ignored: “Write enigmatic headlines.”
