So I’m writing about the Blogger’s Code Of Ethics for YIL, which is a mainstream print magazine about the Internet. In the process, I sent an email to the fellow who’s writing the code, who does what he does (microcontent news — check it out) in part because mainstream print media has covered blogging so poorly in the past. As evidence that his excellent site is on the right track, he cites coverage in the mainstream media. When I write to him, I include my oh-so-official .sig with my two showiest print affiliations as well as a link to this page, which of course has my blog. So your breakfast for thought today is: Which of those .sig items is supposed to make me “real” to this guy? What, in other words, is a credential?
