The blogosphere's Napoleon

Tech bloggers are all lathered up about Mike Arrington's call for someone, perhaps him, to band together uberbloggers to "crush" CNET...and me.

The blogosphere is atwitter (see Techmeme) with Mike Arrington's latest call for someone to "pony up a big round of financing around an existing blog, or perhaps a new entity, and then start rolling them up into a big fat CNET-crushing $200 million per year in revenue business."

It's pleasing to have Mike and others targeting CNET. It must mean that we are at the top of the heap. Competitive envy comes with the territory. And I admire what Mike, Om Malik, Matt Marshall, Rafat Ali, and others have done to build their networks and companies. In fact, we are all friends.

But I'm all for competing. We have lots of ammunition stored up. And our troops across CNET, Webware, Crave, Reviews, and are in the field as I speak, getting after the important stories.
