Adam Curry Takes More Credit Than He Is Due

Here’s an interesting piece of news

Former MTV veejay and podcasting entrepreneur Adam Curry appears to have been caught anonymously editing the podcasting entry on Wikipedia to remove credit from other people and inflate his role in its creation.

And one of those “other people” appears to be our good friend Stephen Downes. One of the statements that appears to be removed includes:

The recovery of MP3 links from distributed weblogs and distribution of the aggregated list using RSS had been demonstrated by Stephen Downes’s [5] Ed Radio [6], launched June 9, 2004.

Adam Curry … for this very selfish misuse of our liberating, collaborative media known as Wikipedia … you are hereby, now and forever, unsubscribed from my iTunes account.

Although, I did noticed that Stephen Downes, in his comment to the story, is much more forgiving than I am.

Just for the record, I like Daily Source Code, I’ve said nice things about it in my blog, and I will continue to listen to Adam Curry. No grudges. (Stephen Downes)
