You can count on our froggy friends to scour every word published about them for the slightest sign of discrimination. And indeed, a French blogger has detected what he dubs "l'américanisme 2.0" in Business 2.0's August issue. The magazine's crime against internationalism: Calling France's Facebook and YouTube wannabes "clones" of the vastly more popular American sites, even though the sites in question, Skyrock and Dailymotion, are older than the sites they supposedly copied.
As they say in the land of Mariane, touché, and as they say in our neck of the woods, douché. Another thing you can count on: If Business 2.0 ceases publication — one of the options parent company Time Inc. has acknowledges it's "exploring" for the title — les blogueurs will now surely take credit for their supposed victory.
