Discussion Notes 2

A journalist asks Sussman why comments on his blog site aren't edited--Sussman explains the difference between editing comments and allowing discussion.
Another audience member remarks on how Google News is edited via algorithm and wonders whether the NY Times, BBC and others could do the same thing--use technology to make up the pages.
The discussion moves to the value of anonymous bloggers in dangerous and political situations--in developing nations for example--but them moves to the need for respondents in comments, for example, to have the courage to identify themselves.
Gillmor says "I would ask people reading things that are anonymous to calibrate fairly carefully what the reasons for that anonymity might be."

Nachison reminds the group that the blogging of these issues will go on--so pile in here and comments, folks.
