wrote about the ethics of blogging
today as a result of the recent blogher conference
and pointed to Rebecca Blood's Weblog Ethics
For a moment, I was feeling good about myself for being almost a week ahead of things with my posting about Facilitated Systems's Core Values
, and then I realized that didn't address my blogging values. I, too, essentially follow the precepts
Flood Blood set forth
, and, to the best of my knowledge, I've only violated them by fixing spelling errors or deleting erroneous hard line breaks in my text after posting it—and those only within the first few minutes after I had published my blog. If I get feedback that people would appreciate me being more transparent about even that (and the few that saw those pre-changed blog entries would have had to have been quite quick in checking my blog updates), I'll be glad to use Flood's strike-out suggestion.
As time goes on, I'll be on the lookout for any ethical statements I find better and keep anyone who reads this informed.
