ON THE DAY Michele Neylon asks for ideas for an IIA blogging seminar scheduled for 1400 on 8 March 2006 in Dublin's Hilton Hotel, Elaine Larkin rewarms comments from solicitors and from Tom Murphy. The solicitors say you can be sued for making defamatory comments. Tom Murphy offers some common sense ideas. The article does not cover how people can blog anonymously while using US hosts to sidestep the long arm of Irish law.
Every academic term, at least one out of every 40 students who I lecture complains about online bullying from blogs or boards. Preventing that malpractice should feature in the IIA seminar--you don't need a blog to be a bully, however.
I have definite thoughts about talking to suits about blogging and many of my suggestions leave the term "blog" at the door.
