This thoughtful piece about the Fort Hood shootings by Paul Carr yet again raises the issue that our biggest chalenge with new communications technologies is not the tools themselves but our ability to make appropriate and responsible use of them. I am confident that we will collectively work this out but in the short term mistakes will be made and we need to be ready for them and learn from them.
[Warning the piece contains a link to a video of the death of Neda Agha Soltan. I haven’t watched it and believe linking it to it was a mistake. Knowing the video exists is enough]
