  1. “Why would the staffer post the party pics given the Governor’s admonition for a sober event and given the dour economic outlook in the state?”

    Martin O’Malley would never issue an “admonition for a sober event” but instead just issue a press release describing the event that way. He knows the Sun would publish it verbatim.

    And I really can’t get too worked up that “essential” members of my state and local governments were out having a few drinks with other “essential” members of our state and local governments – i.e.: Democratic fundraisers and union lobbyists. That pretty much describes a typical night in Annapolis from January through March.

  2. Nice to hear from you Maryland Conservatarian. Alas, many are worked up about this issue and it sparked my interest because it demonstrated how important James Grimmelmann’s work on understanding privacy expectations on social network sites. Thanks! Danielle

    I agree – Grimmelmann’s piece is a must read with regard to this issue. I also noticed Patricia Sanchez Abril and Avner Levin have a new article out the issue of privacy, disclosure and social network sites. I haven’t read it yet, but it’s on my list.

  4. Woody, I too have Patricia and Avner’s piece at the ready. Great to hear from you!
