Comments on: Ethical Dilemma http://designnotes.info/?p=811 Testing & Sprinting Sat, 27 Jan 2018 04:55:00 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.7.9 By: Adrian http://designnotes.info/?p=811&cpage=1#comment-2516 Sat, 02 Dec 2006 20:57:32 +0000 http://designnotes.info/?p=811#comment-2516 What constitutes someone being in your network? Being friends with them? Having at least one conversation with them? It seems that limiting what you’re allowed to write about to information found on your network works against the open nature of the internet.

To me, writing about a link from someone’s blog requires the same ethical rules as writing about a link you saw on engadget or cool hunting. *Add to the thought instead of plagarizing, and make sure to credit them. That way, they have only to gain by you blogging about their link.

At least that’s my take.

I actually have been meaning to write about this stuff myself. del.icio.us is just one example of publicly exposed data-blogging (if you will). I think something like Netflix friends (and the open queue that comes with it) also applies. Is it appropriate to bring up a movie that you saw on someone’s queue with them or do you need to wait until they talk about it?

Jen: When it comes to del.icio.us I think it’s pretty open ended whether a source needs to be mentioned. Of course it’s always nice to refer back to where a link was found. Ya, I luv getting referrals back to my blog when something is mentioned too. It’s cool knowing someone else shares the same enthusiasm for an idea.

Caren x2: The difference being that I initiated the idea from my observations on flickr as opposed to copying the idea from someone else…

Christina: I haven’t checked my mail box for a couple days – I’ll be sure to go by it tonight!

If it’s out there, it’s fair game. And for the record, I find lots of great links through you too MS. Paolo Nutini is the latest find! Thank you thank you!

p.s. Has my package arrived yet?

By: Jen Bekman http://designnotes.info/?p=811&cpage=1#comment-2511 Mon, 27 Nov 2006 05:16:02 +0000 http://designnotes.info/?p=811#comment-2511 Totally, I think it is. I’ve been thinking about this a lot since I started having my del.icio.us links show up automagically on Personism.

Usually I credit the person in my network who I found the link from. Occasionally I’m not able to do that because I like to include notes about what I find interesting from the link itself and I run out of room.

Conversely, I’m always psyched when people pick up links from me and give me credit as the source. I love having trusted authority status!

ps- Michael, I find lots of great links through you!

Does it matter where you found the information? You found it, talk about it!
