Please register for my weblog

Registration is becoming a bit of an epidemic in the mass online news industry. The Online Journalism Review provides an in-depth review of the current state of this disease. It aptly notes my concern:

Registration inevitably has consequences for weblogs, collaborative news sites and newsletters that point to news articles. Says my peeved friend: “If I have to register at every site just follow a stinking link, it slows down the exchange of information. Imagine a network where every news and information site has its own registration process.”

Amen. So who’s ready to register for my weblog?
