ETC: Have You Been Dooced?

Fellow internet citizens! I have a request.

I'm working on a pitch for a segment for the esteemed Canadian radio show Definitely Not the Opera. The segment is all about getting "dooced" and all the various ways your blog can bite you on the ass. I want to interview a few people (and use sound clips of the interview) about how their online confessional tendencies have caused them strife... or at the very least social awkwardness.

Overall, the tone of the piece will be funny (that's the hope, anyway; work with me, people!), but I'm also going to slide some interesting stats in there, as well as some tips on how NOT to get nailed.


If you're interested, or if you have questions, please email me at 50books[AT]gmail[DOT]com. And thanks! You guys rock. You may even rawk, but you're going to have to prove it to me.

The author of the blog www.petiteanglaise.com (an English woman living in Paris) was dooced for her website.

Hi there,

I got into serious trouble at LSE in London. More here: http://ringmar.net/forgethefootnotes/. Now I'm writing a book about blogs and freedom of speech. Would love to hear your program when it's finished.
