A Very Public Private display.
So the fireworks went off, the pundits, reporters, bloggers, readers and armchair lawyers have had their fill of the whole debacle and the upshot of which is no matter how display ends Robert Scoble has managed to increase the traffic and footfall to his site and his views. Well done Robert, even when its going wrong it seems to go right for you.
It left me wondering how little agreement there is on how public or private a name or email or phone number should be. I would assume that if you and I have shared a conversation then you would have access to any data I have shared with you. I would assume that if I placed this information for your access then your going to do with it as you require. I have dont see the difference between my giving you a Business Card or my Facebook profile or my Gamertag. If I have published the information then I would expect it to be used. The point is this; “any information I dont want people to have, I dont share”.
Since there is a clear disparity between my understanding and the person I am dealing with, I thought I would help by using a “License” under which I can clarify my desire for you to “have” the information. I have published the license under my Agreement tab above.
Now providing your not using my information for commercial use or benefit, and providing you credit me with providing you the information then by all means use the information.One more thing I dont want you to use Microsoft Word or Ami Pro for storing my details in unless you ask me. Why ? Because I can ask.
Thanks for reading.
