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.
