Get off your high horse when you are online

Penelope Trunk has written a great piece of advice for print journalists seeking a future in online writing.

Her important advice: be humble and join the conversation.

She points out to the example of writers Malcolm Gladwell and Seth Godin, who have excelled as writers and speakers in the offline world but who don’t participate in online conversation.

While Malcolm Gladwell just ‘reprints’ his New Yorker articles online, Seth Godin does not accept comments.

He is an extremely highly paid public speaker who writes an online diary.

I think Penelope has touched a raw nerve here.
In fact, you can call up instances of many other so-called ‘A-listers’ who
1. Use Akismet as an excuse to filter comments
2. Write a post proudly saying whom they will link and whom they won’t (Jason Calacanis, for example)
