Blog

Sage advice from Brooke.

I’m not going to name names, but I find it particularly disturbing when people who work in tech policy refer to individual blog posts as “blogs.” The blog is the medium, not the message; calling a post a “blog” is the equivalent of calling an article in the Washington Post a newspaper, as in, “Hey, did you read that newspaper in the Washington Post this morning about new FDA regulations on over-the-counter pain relievers? Boy, that Matthew Perrone sure can write a newspaper!”

I’m glad she wrote that blog to make sure no one was confused.

    I’m just glad there weren’t any Adobe documents attached to that blog you just wrote. Well, enough here. Time to go get some money at the ATM machine.
