Your Blog or Mine?

This New York Times Magazine article offers a thought-provoking review of the privacy issues inherent to blogging. The article is more focused on sex than it needs to be, but it's quite a good look at how much and what kinds of personal material do and should go up on blogs. The piece made me reflect in more depth about how blogs are an unprecedentedly democratic medium for communication. Essentially, blogs allow anyone who can type (and many who can't) to become a broadcaster. For better or worse.
