I’ve just had a call from someone on the BBC’s Today programme, who is looking for someone to come on the radio tomorrow morning to comment on Tim O’Reilly’s proposed blogger Code of Conduct.
Balanced BBC coverage of course demands a voice in favour to counter all those against, and it seems that the lack of dripping vitriol in my earlier post on the topic has made me a potential candidate for the gig.
I actually think the code is a rather bad idea, but didn’t feel the need to re-hash all the arguments that have been laid out by many, many others already when I posted about it earlier today. Personally, I think Neil McIntosh sums up the arguments against best over at Complete Tosh.
Update: It seems Tim O’Reilly himself has been tracked down and will be appearing on Today tomorrow morning.
Update, 9am 12/4: Looks like the item didn’t make it on the programme after all.
