Tom Hamilton, in let’s be sensible, has some very wise words about the folly of bloggers rushing into — err, not print; pixels? Doesn’t sound right — into something or other with what they take to be major news stories.
He then has an update; Paul Burgin, of Mars Hill, apparently wants to know
how many of us, late at night, tired, probably a bit drunk, would have immediately blogged such a story sent by a friend?
Mr Hamilton’s answer is a simple one, but worth reading.
Mars Hill, of course, is the chap who recently hit on a novel solution to the problem of how a blogger can break a major news story without risking making any serious errors.
