Strange Fruit, the lynching of Murphy-Goode

Congrats to all the people who tried for the M-G gig, you were amazing and it was a hard choice (to me). Our regular guest Hardy Wallace @dirtysouthwine is the apparent choice of Murphy-Goode, so goode going and get dirty!

I did not follow every detail of the campaign, but I did not have the impression at any time that the votes were any more important than the cheers for Lance Armstrong at the sides of the road (or indeed on Twitter nowadays).

I contend that it isn't surprising (or wrong) that people like Leo and Kevin Rose, who had a friendly "I have more Twitter followers than you" contest would be outraged when they learned that it wasn't a vote contest, the votes (again in my perception) were just a way of cheering people on.

I don't mind that this is now old news in the real time social web, because I think some thought needs to be given to the mob mentality and how it may not be right even if a large number of people line up to crack the whip.

Of course there's a lesson in this story, too.
