Chris Anderson gives the upsides and risks of six principles of open publishing: "All staff edit their own personal 'about' pages; Show what we're working on; Share the reporting as it happens; Give comments equal status to the story they're commenting on; Let readers decide what's best; Wikifiy everything." I do some of these, and not others. I am pretty open about process. As for comments, I allow then, anonymously, even, but when it comes down to it I figure readers can post comments in their own blog, just like me. Same with deciding what's best and wikifying. I don't need to 'let' readers to this, they can do it on their own (and I provide the RSS feed and licensing to enable it). Of course, I don't publish a magazine, either. Hm, maybe I should...
