Blog updates

Blog updating reminds me to have a look at some other things that are interesting. Rather than use ‘press this’ to make separate posts, I will put a couple in one:

Danah Boyd on information access and the rights and wrongs of accessing information from social networking sites – if we can find it on google is it fair game to use?
