Answering objections to the internet

October 5, 2008

Jeff Jarvis is a long-time journalist who embraces the changes brought about by the Internet and, as a consultant, tries to help print-oriented organizations understand why the world is different now.

He also gets cranky listening to the same objections over and over. So here are all the usual complaints about the digital world and his usual answers. 

My favorite:

The internet has no ethics. True. It no more has a moral code than a telephone wire, a car, or a knife. We who use it bring the ethics and laws we live under already.
