A Quick Reminder on Equivalent Power

Since finally listening to Dave Slusher’s the Human Touch presentation from the Podcast and Portable Media Expo, I’ve been thinking a lot about ‘equivalent power’. The notion that if you want to rebut anything I write on any of my blogs, you can do so on your own blog or podcast. This is different than in traditional media where the publisher (newspaper editor, radio show screener, TV producer) can easily censor comments.

Then this gem shows up from the guy I thank for starting us down this righteous path of togetherness:

“When people get the idea that they’re on some righteous path that’s exclusive of others, that’s when I start shaking my head….Get a clue, we’re all bozos on this bus, and none of us gets out of this alive.” – Dave Winer
