Mark Cuban, owner of the Dallas Mavericks, is relatively well known on the web thanks to his ever-entertaining and informative blog. Given this reputation, many people were taken by surprise when they heard Mark Cuban had banned full-time bloggers from the Dallas Mavericks lockerroom, as reported in the Dallas news. Is is true, as Deadspin quipped, that “Mark Cuban dislikes bloggers who aren’t him?”
Now you would think those on the “wikinomics team” would agree with this position, particularly those, you know, writing on the wikinomics blog and all. But I personally don’t, and the reasons why are sitting out there plain as day - right on Mark’s blog. If one reads his post about why he did what he did, rather than the Dallas News story, a far more clear-headed story seems to emerge.
