The rule used to be, don't write anything to your lover that you are not willing to have show up in divorce court.
Now with Google and blogs, you have to assume anything you say to almost anyone
with a keyboard will show up where you least want it to.
So be super careful. The Why Television Sucks lady
clearly ran into a rough patch about her blog. I had to delete my entire first blog because it pissed the wrong people off. The Assistant/Atlas guy
is thiiiiiiis close to being fired -- that is, he's in no trouble now, but it just takes one wrong person to read the thing and he is so fired... and he's in a job where it's semi-awkward to get a new job if you're working, but seriously hard to get a new job if you're not working. And now David Koepp has put his foot in it.
It's a brave new world.
Information *wants* to be free.
The flip side is really cool stuff can escape onto Bittorrent, and everyone can find their own little furry friend if that's what they're into.
But still -- if you're at all articulate, you have to assume that your secret identity will be cracked, just because it's fun to crack a secret identity. And whatever trouble you can get into, you will.
And that, folks, is why I'm not writing about the show I'm working on now... but the issues it makes me think of will eventually surface, in a general way.
