Bill of Rights for the Social Web?

Karoli, odd time signatures, Sept 05, 2007
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Eight years ago I wrote and posted widely something called the Cyberspace Charter of Rights. Now along come people like Marc Canter and Robert Scoble promoting a shortened and Americanized Bill of Rights for Users of the Social Web expressing basically the same principles. Canter's announcement. Scoble's announcement. Peter Cashmore's hot air alert. That's the way of the web - things are deemed Not To Exist until the Right People invent them (and which point they are credited as the inventors). I know I shouldn't be snippy about things like this, but sometimes it's exasperating.
