    Thank you for putting me in such august company!

    I’m not sure that the reliability of where/how one checks facts is a much of an issue as whether people think it’s important to do so. Is there a drive, a motivation, to verify facts at all?

    boyd questions whether media skills would be used for good. Literacy (the old-style media skill) isn’t always used for good – I’m wondering now why there has ever been a belief that new media wouldn’t be just as morally complex as old media?

    Perhaps the moral issues are finally being examined in depth. The open web freedom I defend (and romanticize) could also be seen as having led to closure and commercialism. Perhaps we are romanticizing the skills of critical thinking too.
