Defining standards for bloggers?

Tuesday, August 29th, 2006

Robert Cox, founder and president of the Media Bloggers Association:

“Anytime I can get in front of people who work in journalism, I want them aware of what (the Media Bloggers Association) is working to do,” Cox said. “I’d like them to understand that while there are plenty of folks who are out there not acting by a set of standards, there are some people out there who are trying to make a difference.”

An old term

Sunday, August 20th, 2006

For Westerners. it is a central consequence of concepts of gender difference that a person may be turned by another person into an object and robbed of her or his status as subject. The proper state for a Western person is to have ownership of the self, to have and hold a core identity as if it were a possession. That possession may be made from various raw materials over time, that is, it may be a cultural production, or one may be born with it. Gender identity is such a possession. Not to have property in the self is not to be a subject, and so not to have agency. [“Cyborg Manifesto,” 135]
