The Audience is Listening

Dave Slusher has discovered the power of the audience. Make a mistake and you’ll immediately be corrected. I learned this early on from Dave Winer and even more so from Dan Gillmor. Dan has long pointed out that his readers know more than he does, and that’s true for all of us. It’s like writing a book and having hundreds of pre-publication reviewers. The only problem is that in this case the reviews are post-publication. The answer is humility. Be prepared to be corrected, and if you’re bold enough to correct someone, be prepared to re re-corrected.
