For all those interested in questions of ethics from the perspective of a Web Archivist, Nicholas Taylor’s blog post titled the “Question of Ethics at Web Archives 2015” is an interesting read. After reading his post, I can only take a sigh of relief that my assessment of ethics dominating the discourse amongst the attendees was well-founded (Nicholas holds a similar view!). Not to mention that his post briefly mentions about my views on the legality of social media archiving specifically in the context of Twitter, about which I presented at the Conference.
Nicholas’s post is a real eye-opener on some of the recurrent themes that ran through the Conference. Having missed few sessions, I was myself not aware of some of the discussions that took place. Hence, there could not have been a better timing.
I would not rant you with my endless commentary on how excellent his post is. Read and decide for yourself. I assure that you will not be disappointed. Happy Reading!
