Matt talks about being at the helm of a shitstorm: "I’d hate to see blogs get known for reactionary authors".
I think it may be too late. Having been the instigator of a few minor ones and having borne the brunt of some pretty violent blogosphere shitstorms, I think we’ve already got a well-deserved reputation for going off half-cocked.
I’m hoping we don’t permanently end up with a reputation as an unkind community, but I see little discussion of the social implications of the blogging medium.
