Back to the Table

The NYT on the intersection between blogging and privacy has a good quote:

"All writing is a form of negotiation between the reader and writer over what constitutes responsibility," said David Weinberger, author of "Small Pieces Loosely Joined," a book about the Internet. "Because blogs are a new form, the negotiation can easily go awry."

So, when Dave Winer distorts and oversimplifies on his blog, it's a sign I should bring in a professional arbiter, because our "negotiation" is badly in need of help.
