Cory posts a great riff as to why Google’s AutoLink is a good thing. Scoble counters that it is not.
I see both points of view here, but as I’ve said before, I fall more toward Cory’s line of thinking. Regardless, what I would love to to see is Google openly and transparently joining, listening, defending, and iterating based on this conversation. Be part of the dialog, Google! Why not?
