The feedback loop: one year on.

After a year of more or less regular blogging and 150 or so entries, an update on some concerns that are raised from time to time in both comments and e-mails.

1. The blog is a supplement to the five-times-a-week column in the print edition of the Vancouver Sun. I also do regular commentaries on radio station CKNW and on KUOW,  the National Public Radio Station in Seattle. Plus there's Voice of B.C, the weekly interview show that I host on Shaw-TV, broadcast on most of the cable channels in the province. If you are wondering why a particular issue hasn't been raised in the blog, it may well have come up in one of those other forums.

2. Comments and suggestions welcome, particularly if they add to the debate in any constructive way. 

3. I do try to post most of the comments that come in to the blog. But I've stopped posting those that could , in my assessment,  put me or The Sun at risk of the kind of defamation suit that would not likely be launched against an anonymous poster on the internet.  I've also stopped including links to other blogs, out of a concern that the law is unclear on whether the newspaper can be sued for linking to somebody else's possibly defamatory comments. Nor am I the one to contact if you want to ask about coverage by other news organizations, in other parts of the paper, or by commentators other than myself. 

4. Looking for a direct response? I don't have time to respond to comments posted elsewhere. But I do try to respond to direct e-mails, at either one of two addresses: vpalmer@shawlink.ca  or vpalmer@vancouversun.com  Please  feel free to use those addresses for passing along tips, comments and suggestions that you'd rather not share with the wide, wonderful world of the internet.

5. Thanks again to everyone who checked out the blog over the past year and particularly to those who contributed to it.
