Weblogs: speed or haste?

We do our best here at Letter to Slugger O’Toole to bring you bona fide comment and links to reliable on-line resources relating to Northern Ireland.

Speed is a strong feature of the medium. Yesterday, for instance, we reported quickly on the change at the top in NI.

However in the pursuit of the great themes in the news at times of crisis and excitment, there can be a danger of getting carried away. As in this sniper story in the US.

Thanks to Carrie at The Blanket for this one.

A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
