Blogging is a contact sport

by Todd Ogasawara

I was all set to mention a blog entry on my personal Open Source in Government blog site about how the Western States Information Network (WSIN) is using blogging instead of email to capture information when I ran across the following Slashdot note...


Slashdot: Columnist Threatens to Sue Blogger


Then, I remembered reading these two other blog-related articles in Slashdot in just the past week...


Slashdot: Microsoft Fires Mac Fan For Blog Photo


Slashdot: Spam Rapidly Increasing In Weblog Comments


Blogging (and Wikis), like all other tech-social phenomena, started out as a flying-under-the-radar niche activity that was easy, relatively safe, and relatively trouble-free. Those days are over fellow bloggers. Welcome to the mainstream... Safe blogging...


Have you started worrying about what you blog and how you blog/write it?

Yes - I'm a big mouth
Yes I have. But, not for the reasons you'd think.


I, like a lot of people, just have a big mouth. I'm sure I'm not alone, but sometimesI I post first and think second. This might be the one good application of a "Are you sure you want to..." warning.

(I also have a big mouth. Allow me to demonstrate.)


A rule of thumb: If you think you need an "Are you sure...?" dialog box, you are wrong.

Kerry 's military service discharge date
It has been reported John Kerry's discharge date should have been in 1972. The actual date was in March of 2001. Was there a special reason for the delay in the discharge date?

Kerry 's military service discharge date
Was John Kerry's official honorable discharge really only initiated in March of 2001? If so, why wasn't the public made aware that Bba Clinton had had his finer in the pie?
