Earlier this week — thanks to Trace Rabern, a lawyer I know from Twitter — I was interviewed by a reporter from the San Diego CityBeat for an article about “talking smack” online. (Tagline: Real. Alternative. News.)
Freedom of speech is something that’s been near and dear to my heart ever since I was a wee lad spouting “you can’t make me!” to my mom when she told me to be quiet. (I was right, too. The slap on my face only made me louder.)
The reporter interviewed me for about 40 minutes, during which I mentioned to him that I found the case interesting and would likely blog about it. Since his article went online today, and I want to clarify something about my comments, now’s the time.
