Steve Wright gives the blog talk in San Francisco

25 February 2005

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. - The students in the session on writing blogs were excited and perplexed all at the same time - just as they are when they first begin publishing in print.
They are unhappy if no one reads them at all, and unhappy if someone reads them and is critical of their work. And students are the most vicious critics of their peers work.
Steve Wright of the San Jose Mercury News offered his view of blogging in the last hour, an odd mix of both free market journalism and 'have-the-lawyers-check-your-work.
The one bit of definitely BAD advice was:just put it up on the web, if it's wrong you can always just take it down.
Let something loose on the internet and it takes on a life of its own, no matter how fast you take it down.
