On The Button

I noticed David Weinberger’s post, but didn’t read it carefully the first time; the words “CIA” and “Wikipedia” stood out, so I opted not to follow through on some covert operation to subvert open-source reference work, or edit wars about U.S. intelligence, or whatever.
Then I read it more carefully, and thought, “Wow — I can think right away of more than one organization for which these rules function as creedal statements, rather than as a deliberate tactic for paralysis and failure.” The next time I sit through an interminable personal reminiscence about a tangential topic, I may send the committee chair a copy of this post.
