The Muscatis in OER

The Muscati(s) in Oman Economic Review magazine

Oman Economic Review magazine has an "interview" with me in the current issue which is out now. Unforunately you cannot browse the site without registering first. [link]

I thought I was being "interviewed" as part of a bigger article about blogging. I'm surprised when I saw it now and it's just me.

But isn't your cover blown? Not that most did not know who Muscati is and it is easy enough to find out.

AKARound Peg- That's why I put the word interview in quotation marks. OER's editor told me that one of his reporters had written an article on blogs but he wanted it to have more about local bloggers. The reporter called me and wanted to know more about my blog. Initially he wanted me to do a write-up about my blog- typically of a journalist from an Omani publication, I guess. I refused and said why I don't I email you the link to the blog and a couple lines about it and then you can call me back to interview after you read it. I emailed him from work which automatically puts my full name in the signature (the way you see in the article). He never called me back for the interview and apparently cut and pasted what I had written in my email to make it look like an interview. For example when I said you can find a link to the Omani Blog Awards in my blog, it was an instruction to the journalist to take it from there and put in his article. Instead he just cut and pasted what I wrote.

By the way, the magazine is usually disitributed for free inside in a stand inside Shatti Cinema. You can look for it next time you're in the movies.
