One blogger in the whole Kathy Sierra thing that I found to do a great job is Jim Turner. He did lots of original reporting over the past two weeks, go back and look at his blog over the past couple of weeks (was one of a handful of bloggers who contacted everyone involved). He didn’t get emotional, even though lots of his friends were involved. He presented the facts as completely and objectively as he could.
If all bloggers did jobs like this then we wouldn’t need calls for blogger codes of conduct.
I count myself in that rebuke. I haven’t been to this level of blogging for a while.
Thanks Jim for providing a good bar for us all to aspire to.
Oh, and Maryam wraps this whole thing up with “nobody looks good in public fights.”
