Problems With ThirdVoice

from the some-people-are-so-picky dept

Apparently, not everyone thinks ThirdVoice is a very cool technology. It seems that people are upset that others can more or less "write" on their web page. I think they may have a reasonable argument, though not necessarily a legal one.

Thank you for reading this Techdirt post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

Techdirt is one of the few remaining truly independent media outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis.

While other websites have resorted to paywalls, registration requirements, and increasingly annoying/intrusive advertising, we have always kept Techdirt open and available to anyone. But in order to continue doing so, we need your support. We offer a variety of ways for our readers to support us, from direct donations to special subscriptions and cool merchandise — and every little bit helps. Thank you.

–The Techdirt Team

    Re: I see 2 big problems for T.V.

    I pretty much agree with you on this one. I definitely see how things would get over annotated and we simply have a new usenet type problem, with pure spam and annoying kiddies as signal to noise becomes more of a joke than an issue. As for the lawsuit, if I remember correctly (and now it's an issue of who remembers correctly - or who makes the effort to look this stuff up) the case was settled out of court with the offending party agreeing to stop putting the info in frames for the bigger, nastier, and angrier of the sites involved.

    I definitely do see where Third Voice might be interesting for me to annotate things to a web page for my own use.. of course then I take it a step further and ask what if I want to share those annotations with some friends? Not quite sure how one deals with something like that.
