Good Luck, Council On Ethical Blogging and Aggregation


Simon Dumenco, a Media Reporter for Ad Age, has come up with something called the Council on Ethical Blogging and Aggregation (CEBA).
The Group, according to David Carr in The New York Times, was founded in the hopes of developing a proper way for bloggers and aggregaters to credit others’ writing.
As aggregators ourselves, we completely agree that there should be some sort of standard.
But there’s a couple problems with the CEBA. Maybe the most troubling thing is that for a group developing rules for bloggers, there aren’t many bloggers taking part. 
Another problem with the CEBA is that while it’s a great idea, it’ll be preaching to the choir. Those that will listen to its ideas about ethical crediting already conduct themselves in the right way. Blogs that seedily go about linking won’t change, no matter what the CEBA comes up with.Original post – http://bit.ly/zn5jpT – by Chris O’Shea – http://bit.ly/yBucek
