Accountability In The Digital Age

Yoss at offers some interesting thoughts on how Web discussions—and he links to a bunch—about the behavior of Fox's attorneys in the Al Franken lawsuit might serve as both consumer advisory and an indirect but effective form of discipline. In email, Yoss writes, "The Internet, and Google in particular, have become a de facto national reputation management system." There's no denying he has a point, or that visibility and accountability will continue to go hand in hand as members the public (and professional colleagues) make their opinions known in a persistent, indexed, and searchable way.
