Netoo 2.0

ianuarie 30, 2007

Tocmai am numarat persoanele care au aderat la Netoo. Sunt peste 70 de bloggeri si non-bloggeri care au solicitat sa participe la intalnirile lunare ale Netoo. Participarea per editie a crescut de la 20 (Editia I) la 40 de persoane (Editia V). Iar solicitarile continua sa apara.

Inainte de Netoo #5 chiar am avut un moment in care m-am intrebat ce o sa facem in viitor daca numarul participantilor va creste. M-au intrebat si altii.

Ma gandesc deja la Netoo #6, desi nu s-au ‘uscat’ inca posturile despre oportunitatea unui cod de bune practici. Ma gandesc la ceea ce va insemna acest club, la cum se poate dezvolta.

Dupa primele 5 editii pot spune ca am adunat mai multe feedback-uri. Au fost multi non-bloggeri care au vrut sa participe si nu au venit pentru simplul motiv ca nu aveau un blog. Au fost persoane care ar fi vrut sa vorbeasca dar nu au apucat sau nu au gasit un loc. Au fost cazuri in care topicul nu era pe gustul tuturor sau s-au format anumite ‘bisericute’. Si altele…

M-am uitat astazi pe toate posturile din acest blog. Asa am regasit posturile de la inceputurile clubului, cele in care incercam sa gasim o directie. Si asa am gasit directia pe care o va primi Netoo de la editia a 6-a.

Pe scurt, Netoo va deveni un hub pentru o serie de meeting-uri organizate de catre cei care adera la club. Va deveni o platforma prin care se pot initia diverse discutii intre grupuri de oameni cu interese comune.

Fiecare intalnire va avea un initiator; si nu voi fi eu neaparat acela. 🙂 Iar cel care va initia intalnirea va putea invita orice membru din Netoo sa participe.

Cred ca nimeni nu isi doreste congrese, ci intalniri pe gustul sau. Asta imi doresc si eu.

Imi doresc sa putem lansa noul Netoo la RoBlogFest. Spun „putem” si nu „pot” pentru ca sper sa gasesc sprijin in realizarea acestei platforme.

Jeff Jarvis: publish first and edit later

ianuarie 29, 2007

„Blogs are first and foremost a conversation, people talking,” said Jeff Jarvis, a journalist-turned-blogger who created a forum called BuzzMachine.

Blogs, he said, have a „different biorhythm” where postings that are initially inaccurate or unfair are corrected online through readers comments and updated blog entries. „This is a world,” he said, „where you publish first and edit later.”

Graphic: Blogging Without Journalistic Standards

Although a third of bloggers identify themselves as journalists, a recent survey by the Pew Center showed the majority of bloggers don’t abide by some common journalistic practices.

A Bloggers’ Code of Ethics

ianuarie 27, 2007

Some bloggers recently have been debating what, if any, ethics the Weblog community should follow. Since not all bloggers are journalists and the Weblog form is more casual, they argue they shouldn’t be expected to follow the same ethics codes journalists are. But responsible bloggers should recognize that they are publishing words publicly, and therefore have certain ethical obligations to their readers, the people they write about, and society in general. has created a model Bloggers’ Code of Ethics, by modifying the Society of Professional Journalists Code of Ethics for the Weblog world. These are just guidelines – in the end it is up to individual bloggers to choose their own best practices. follows this code and urges other Weblogs to adopt this one or similar practices.

Integrity is the cornerstone of credibility. Bloggers who adopt this code of principles and these standards of practice not only practice ethical publishing, but convey to their readers that they can be trusted.


Be Honest and Fair
Bloggers should be honest and fair in gathering, reporting and interpreting information.
Bloggers should:
• Never plagiarize.
• Identify and link to sources whenever feasible. The public is entitled to as much information as possible on sources’ reliability.
• Make certain that Weblog entries, quotations, headlines, photos and all other content do not misrepresent. They should not oversimplify or highlight incidents out of context.
• Never distort the content of photos without disclosing what has been changed. Image enhancement is only acceptable for for technical clarity. Label montages and photo illustrations.
• Never publish information they know is inaccurate – and if publishing questionable information, make it clear it’s in doubt.
• Distinguish between advocacy, commentary and factual information. Even advocacy writing and commentary should not misrepresent fact or context.
• Distinguish factual information and commentary from advertising and shun hybrids that blur the lines between the two.

Minimize Harm
Ethical bloggers treat sources and subjects as human beings deserving of respect.
Bloggers should:
• Show compassion for those who may be affected adversely by Weblog content. Use special sensitivity when dealing with children and inexperienced sources or subjects.
• Be sensitive when seeking or using interviews or photographs of those affected by tragedy or grief.
• Recognize that gathering and reporting information may cause harm or discomfort. Pursuit of information is not a license for arrogance.
• Recognize that private people have a greater right to control information about themselves than do public officials and others who seek power, influence or attention. Only an overriding public need can justify intrusion into anyone’s privacy.
• Show good taste. Avoid pandering to lurid curiosity.
Be cautious about identifying juvenile suspects, victims of sex crimes and criminal suspects before the formal filing of charges.

Be Accountable
Bloggers should:
• Admit mistakes and correct them promptly.
• Explain each Weblog’s mission and invite dialogue with the public over its content and the bloggers’ conduct.
• Disclose conflicts of interest, affiliations, activities and personal agendas.
• Deny favored treatment to advertisers and special interests and resist their pressure to influence content. When exceptions are made, disclose them fully to readers.
• Be wary of sources offering information for favors. When accepting such information, disclose the favors.
• Expose unethical practices of other bloggers.
• Abide by the same high standards to which they hold others.

After Netoo #5

ianuarie 26, 2007

Am avut aseara prima editie a Netoo desfasurata in afara tarii, dupa cum a remarcat un participant: „La British Council suntem pe teritoriu britanic”. Reactiile la intalnirea de aseara au inceput sa curga. Le vom include intr-un post special pe blogul Netoo.

Asa cum am promis, va reamintesc tag-ul Technorati pe care va invitam sa il inserati in posturile voastre despre intalnirea din aceasta seara: „BunePractici”.

<align=”right”>Tag Technorati: <a href=”” rel=”tag”>BunePractici

Totodata revin cu invitatia de a trimite pe adresa propunerile/ ideile/ provocarile/ semnele de intrebare/ principiile… pentru draft-ul codului de bune practici pana pe 25 februarie. In masura interesului avut, va rog sa specificati si acest deadline in insemnarile care sustin sau combat aceasta initiativa.

Lista e completa!

ianuarie 24, 2007

Am oprit confirmarile pentru intalnirea Netoo #5 de maine. Suntem deja mai multi decat am preconizat. Am ajuns la 45 de confirmari! Vom incerca sa gasim o solutie de amenajare a spatiului pentru a nu crea disconfort.

Voi trimite inca un e-mail cu lista finala de confirmari. Cred ca i-am trecut pe toti cei care ne-au scris, dar daca am omis pe cineva, va rog sa imi spuneti.

Netoo 5 la British Council

ianuarie 22, 2007

Schimbam putin locatia Netoo la aceasta editie. Il aducem mai aproape de centru si de mai multe mijloace de transport.

Razvan (caruia ii multumesc inca o data pentru suport) ne-a aranjat sa ne intalnim pentru Netoo #5 la cafeneaua de la British Council, ceea ce suna foarte bine! (pe site-ul British Council e mentionat ca momentan cafeneaua e inchisa. Nu va faceti griji, totul e stabilit pentru Netoo).

Data ramane aceeasi: 25.01. Ora ramane aceeasi: 19.00.

UPDATE: M-am interesat si am aflat ca sala de la British Council poate gazdui in jur de 25 de persoane. Cel mult 30. Am primit deja o serie de confirmari, dar ne-ar ajuta foarte mult sa primim un semn pe e-mail (clubnetoo @ gmail . com) de la toti cei care doresc sa participe, chiar si de la „veterani”.

UPDATE 2: Marti seara am numarat 28 de confirmari pentru Netoo 5. Am trimis deja un mail cu numele confirmatilor tuturor celor care au aderat la club de la inceputuri si pana marti. Cu siguranta nu vor putea ajunge toti cei 28 de confirmati (s-a intamplat de fiecare data) , insa cu siguranta vor mai veni solicitari de participare (probabil de la cei mai vechi membri). Pentru a avea totusi un confort la fata locului, consider inchisa lista pentru participantii NOI (cei care vor veni incepand de miercuri), ea ramanand deschisa pentru persoanele care au participat deja la una din celelalte editii si nu au apucat sa confirme inca.
