ETC: Definitely Not Shameless Self-Promotion

If you've been wondering what I've been up to in my spare time all week, listen to Definitely Not the Opera on CBC Radio One tomorrow, sometime between 2:00 and 3:00 pm.* I'll be talking with host Sook-Yin Lee about blogging, privacy, free speech, employment law, and how not to get dooced. You'll also hear from Cecily and Stacey, two of the many, many people who emailed me with their tales of blog-related skulduggery.

If you don't live in Canada and therefore can't enjoy the wonder that is our public broadcasting system, come back on Monday, when I'll be posting a link to the podcast.

*Actually, you should check out the entire broadcast, starting at 1:00 pm. Sook-Yin will be talking to one of my new favourite authors Alexander McCall Smith (!!!), and
Nick Purdon will be making the bold declaration that DBC Pierre's novel Vernon God Little could be the best book since Watership Down. Hmmm... now there's an argument I have to check out.

I learnt a new word!! I was dooced .
The guy that got me a job at the paper phoned me. He wanted to see how I liked my new job. I thought I was taking to a different friend and was going on and on....naturaly he let me go on and on...the next day I was called into the office and let go.

I didn't get a chance to listen, but ... Vernon God Little, the best since Watership Down? Seriously? I mean, it was a fun read and all, if wildly overpraised, but stil...seriously? For real?
