i’m a bit nervous about the story. i don’t really like writing that personally that publicly (anymore).

This is a concern that’s growing in many of the discussions I have with friends by email.

People are becoming wary of the volume of personal history online that others can find.

I’m beginning to share the concern: I saw that Jeffrey Zeldman (wise man if there ever was one) mentions his daughter as “A—”.

I’m beginning to think in terms of censorship. Evidently, what you write on your site is not to be censored the same way when you have 10 readers or a hundred times more. Protecting my private life —namely, protecting my kids— may become a priority.

I don’t feel like being that personal anymore, either.
