Weapon of mass detraction

Learning with e's

Very quickly the harsh comments began to pop up on the Twitter stream, and very soon they became a torrent of abuse, disparaging remarks that took on a more and more personal hue, turning the event into a 'car crash keynote'. The outcome was that the Twitter stream hashtagged #heweb09 began to trend. But it takes some courage to stand up and challenge this kind of behaviour, especially when it is within your own community of practice and your own reputation may be at stake.
