Now That You've All Done That First Assignment...

...describing your own relationship to information, try a second. Post a description of one (or all) of the bloggers you met Monday night. What are THEY trying to do? What's their mission? If you focus on one person but feel you don't know enough, you can always ask questions through a comment on their blogs or email them .

Well, some of the folks here have written great posts about their relationships with information and I was planning to post mine a little later today, but now that I've seen the new assignment, I figured I'd wait for a little bit before I do that.

Now, to hop over to an information distribution role, with perhaps a twist of advocacy, although I leave it as an exercise to the reader to determine what I might be advocating, let me point you to this article in today's Wall Street Journal about Wikipedia in China.

I would love to hear comments about that.

I can only assume the Chinese government has mastered the art of the wiki, both in manipulating the message and in tracking the dissident voice. I’m a bit more cynical than the champagne-popping Wikikmedia systems administrator quoted.
