Re: [NYC-rb] follow up on that RoR class for developers @ GA in January ...

I think it bears mentioning that anything you post on a public/semi-public email list might find a wider audience than you might have originally expected.

Never say/do anything that might be embarrassing to you if published on the front page of the NYT.  The "press" can and do report on real/imagined controversies to generate readership.  Journalists are often quite loose with the context in which an argument happened.  Particularly on a deadline and particularly if they only have so many column-inches to fill.

Another tip: if you "insert" yourself into a controversy/newsworthy item, you give up your right to privacy w.r.t the media.  That's Journalism 101.

In addition, there are sites like http://answerpot.com that archive lists and make them publicly available. I had a friend who was asked to resign her job due to a posting that went against her company's policies.

Kfir, as a public email list (that a Betabeat journalist is probably subscribed to) they don't have to ask your permission.  Actually even if it was private they wouldn't need to either, although then they might actually try and reach out to you for comment.
