Blogger Etiquette

Tom Foremski makes a good point today about blogger etiquette. Don’t get me wrong.  I’m all about transparency, expressing one’s self, and democratizing media and marketing in our world where anyone can publish almost anything at any time.  But that’s VERY different than having the common courtesy to ask someone if it’s okay to publish a live video stream.

I see many people in our industry driven too much by a desire to be noticed; by an attention “from without” rather than “from within” as the Buddhists would say.  Frankly, that’s not a healthy state of mind from which to interact with the world. I don’t mean to pontificate or sound pedantic.  But that’s my opinion and I’m sticking to it.
