Disappointing: I just had a call from Radio 4's PM news programme about personal privacy infringements and YouTube (they'd heard about my new new media talk)... said call developing into a conversation about evolving social norms, concepts of fairness, and how an awareness of the public and new genres have emerged in email (we know our emails can be forwarded on so we're more careful) and video blogs (I was surprised to see lonelygirl15 accepted as a fiction and still cared about, rather than vilified). Fascinating. The disappointing bit? There was the chance I could be interviewed on the radio, on a show presented by my favourite news broadcaster (Eddie Mair; sharp and dry), but I'm in Oslo from first thing tomorrow till Saturday so it couldn't happen. Darn.
