Saw this over at arstechnica and had to spread the good word, even if it’s still just a bill sittin’ on capital hill.

New bill to give bloggers same shield law protection as journalists
By Jacqui Cheng
The House of Representatives has amended the Free Flow of Information Act of 2007 to include provisions to protect bloggers from being required to divulge their sources under certain situations in the same way as journalists. Instead of requiring journalists to be tied to a news organization, the bill now defines “journalism” to focus more on the function of the job: “the gathering, preparing, collecting, photographing, recording, writing, editing, reporting, or publishing of news or information that concerns local, national, or international events or other matters of public interest for dissemination to the public.”

Read the whole article!  PLZ!  Its very interesting and probably contains some info you could use in the near future.

You never know, G.W. Bush could lose it at any minute and declare the “internets” a “series of tubes” and demand that he be allowed to slide down them like he did at the water park.  You know how he loves his toys. 😛

There are actually a whole lot of details like that to take into consideration. That may be a great point to convey up. I supply the thoughts above as general inspiration however clearly there are questions like the one you convey up the place an important thing will likely be working in honest good faith. I don?t know if finest practices have emerged around issues like that, however I’m sure that your job is clearly recognized as a fair game. Both boys and girls feel the influence of only a second’s pleasure, for the remainder of their lives.
