Another of the ridiculous Economists debates is taking place and they've managed to con convince Ewan McIntosh to take part (hey Ewan, are you getting paid for this? How about some disclosure). For my part, the discussions by Will Richardson and danah boyd are more articulate and better informed. But this is the norm with the Economist debates, which are more about propagating a cult of 'experts' (who they, of course, publish) rather than discussion of any given issue. Goodness, look at the stern male hands making authoritative points, as depicted in the logo. The Economist is so far out of the discussion they don't even know what the discussion is.
