What are your communication goals?

I am on a mailing list of people interested in using technology for not for profits. On this mailing list a discussion erupted concerning when to post to the mailing list, when to put information on a blog and whether it is appropriate to post some of the information on the mailing list with a pointer back to the blog for a more detailed discussion.

I think the emails going back and forth bring us back to an important underlying concept. Whatever you write, think about the goals you have is what you are sending out and question whether the content and the medium effectively serve these goals.

My Favorite Blogs, from the sound of Mainstream Media

Moonbats and Wingnuts and fascists and commies
liars and cowards and media fallout
long diatribes with no content at all
These are a few of my favorite spins

When the dow drops
When the bombs fall
When I'm feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don't feel so bad

"My son’s life was not frivolous"

(Originally published in Greater Democracy)

In today’s New York Times, Robert Pear writes: “that four television networks had turned down its request to run an advertisement opposing President Bush's effort to clamp down on medical malpractice lawsuits.” He noted that the “networks said the advertisement violated their standards for advertising on controversial issues.”

By doing so, the fourth estate is failing its duties to promote public discourse about the issues that are most important to all Americans.
