Response to Danah Boyd: Peer review or lynching?
A month ago, danah boyd blogged her essay about the social distinctions between MySpace and FaceBook users. Now she writes a follow-up. She attempts to clear up some issues, and also responds to the firestorm of comments, blog posts and media stories her post generated. It’s worth a read if you have 10 minutes.
My question is this: In a world where we can publish anything we want and everyone else can respond with all kinds of personal attacks against us, do we have more freedom of expression than we used to? Or do we have less?
