Gag This
At the recent "All Things Digital" conference, put on in part by the Wall Street Journal, reporters in attendance we instucted to view anything said on stage by the speakers (including Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, and Barry Diller) as "off the record" and not fit for publication without the consent of the speaker. But some bloggers in the audience were not informed of the gag-order and reported on the conference on their sites. This raises interesting questions about the future (present?) of journalism and the impact of web-logs on the conventions of reporting. Who isn't a reporter these days?
