Everyone is a Public Figure

During his presentation on metaproramming and software testing, Scott Halloway told the audience now don’t write in your blogs that Scott Halloway said not to test, because I am not saying that. Halloway was aware that he was speaking to a group and that anyone could write about it in their blog. I am guessing many public speakers are not so sophisticated.

In a world where everyone is a journalist, everyone is a public figure. Those of us in public relations owe it to our clients to explain this. Those of us who write blogs are going to have to begin a discussion about when, and under what circumstances, you can write about someone in your blog.
