Gavin:

The medium can be blaimed to the extent that it encourages bad habits, and makes it easier to exercise them. Its muc heasier to depersonalise and demonise people in an impersonal electronic world where you can beanonyomous. Using it sensibly , as Tim O'Reilly himself points out, is really just common sense.

The article was written before Archive came out, where Paul Beverley picks up a similar thread in his editorial.

Where there is 'lack of news', it might be helpful if some of the sites published a 'this is what are working on' type blog on newsletter. They could not then be accused of preannouncing or making promises, but we cold all see things moving forward...
