Facebook echo chamber: Or, the British media and the election

"The Truth"

“Be careful. People like to be told what they already know. Remember that. They get uncomfortable when you tell them new things. New things…well, new things aren't what they expect. They like to know that, say, a dog will bite a man. That is what dogs do. They don’t want to know that man bites a dog, because the world is not supposed to happen like that. In short, what people think they want is news, but what they really crave is olds…Not news but olds, telling people that what they think they already know is true.”

El Reg in email address blunder

Mehh
Thumb Up

Nicely handled

Ignoring just for a moment the error itself, I think that the response from El Reg really couldn't have been better. Posting the story within an hour, reporting to ICO and an e-mail apology received this evening.

If you could share the response from ICO and what steps you're taking to prevent it from happening again (in the same way, at least) I think you'd get a perfect 10 :)

Alert

A hoax?

The whole things sounds so ridiculously optimistic on Allen's part, I begin to wonder if this is going to eventually play out something like the Cage/Batt dispute 8 or so years ago.
