weblog ethics: In the recent flurry of articles about weblog ethics, I've been trying to puzzle out this quote from David Weinberger:
Blogging is more like a conversation, and "you can't develop a code of ethics for conversations," said David Weinberger, a prominent blogger and research fellow at Harvard's Berkman Center for Internet and Society. "A conversation with your best friend would become stilted and alienating."
What?
First of all, publishing a weblog is not at all like a conversation between two people, it's more like speaking in front of a room full of people--some of them trusted, some of them strangers--and having every word you say recorded and catalogued for future random retrieval. So that analogy doesn't work.
