Quote Foul!

Heather Green

"Everyone is famous for 15 people."

I claim this quote in today's New York Times story on podcasting for David Weinberger! I claim it from the forces that would turn it into an unattributed maxim. And I also want to know how it was turned into a podcasting maxim?

Ok, little background here. While Steve Baker and I were doing our reporting early this year for our cover story on blogging, we spoke with gobs of people. This quote kept coming up to explain the widespread appeal of blogging--whether it was someone blogging about their baby or their cat.

However, everytime someone said this quote, they quickly added, but please attribute this to David Weinberger if you use it. I am all in favor of keeping it attributed to Weinberger!

Before it's here, it's on the Bloomberg Terminal.
