Vlogging comes to mass murder

Dave Winer wrote a series of posts today about the videos that Cho Seung-Hui sent to NBC and, specifically, wrote that:
NBC should release all of the videos in Quicktime form as downloads. It's wrong to withhold them.

They're sifting through them and deciding what to release and what not to release.

It's 2007, and it's a decentralized world. We should all get a chance to see what's on those videos.

GIven enough time the focus will go on their process, much better to just let it all out now, with no editorial judgement.

If you have contacts in the blogging world or MSM that could influence NBC's decision, please pass this on.

I respect what you've done in the past Dave but, seriously, have you gone completely bonkers?!?

We have no right to see those videos. There's a freakin' limit to voyeurism. Have you thought about the parents of the people that were murdered? Even for just a second?

h/t to Mike Driehorst for pointing this out.

Au bas du «post» de M. Winer, il est écrit «It's even worse than it appears.»

Mais c'est qu'il est vraiment sérieux... Même un autre pionnier des blogues, Doc Searls, semble penser comme lui : «So I think Dave is right. If there is nothing to hide here, other than obscenities that cannot be broadcast on TV or radio, there is no reason why NBC should withhold the recordings other than the belief that they own them, and hold them as property.»

Il m'en manque un bout pour comprendre où ils s'en vont avec ça...

Tant qu'à faire pourquoi pas.

Avec tout download du vidéo, un pistolet 9mm vous sera offert à 50% de rabais chez Gun Depot ?

Vraiment Winer et Searls sont d'une inconscience absolut !!!
