A sacred line

Thursday, August 16, 2007 by Dave Winer.

Today I got a brief note from Jason Calacanis requesting that I not mention him on my weblog. This requires a public response. The answer is no. Jason, you just crossed a sacred line. I decide what belongs on this blog. If I worked for you I would resign, just like the editor of PC World did, when they tried to control his editorial. Geez, I hope you don't do this to the editorial people who work for Mahalo.  Permalink to this paragraph

Andrew Badera has a fair response to undue pressure.  Permalink to this paragraph

The PC World editor resigned over an article entitled Ten Things We Hate About Apple. Management relented and the article ran. Permalink to this paragraph
