Wow! Amazing story! I think this would do a great novel!
The mother could become the online best friend of the girl in the blog and work as an infiltrate to keep receiving information from inside!

Just a thought...

You're right! Great story line Paulo. Then, the mother discovering her dark side starts discovering ways she can manipulate the girl in the blog. It began with small, well-meaning suggestions that the girl responded to and reported back on... until one day ....!


Hi, nice example of the impact of having everything online! I think it's just OK to read it, after all it's a public blog. I hope we will only get smarter at understanding people and people's reactions by having more thoughts and feelings openly available on the web, especially through weblogs...

Occasionally people ask me whether it's allowed to subscribe to my blog, by the way.

"Occasionally people ask me whether it's allowed to subscribe to my blog".

And that is why we have to keep checking our assumptions about what meaning other people give all this Web2.0 stuff. Fascinating.

I sympathize with the mother's dilemma - makes me squirm just hearing about it!
>I think it's just OK to read it, after all it's a public blog.
Well, ethically I guess it's OK ... but if it was me I really wouldn't want to.
Too much information!

This blog

  • My name is Bev Trayner and I live in Setúbal, Portugal. The focus of my research and practice is designing for learning in distributed communities. I am particularly interested in connecting people in international communities. Key words are: communities of practice, learning, meaning-making, inclusion, multiliteracies, Portugal, and Web2.0 technologies. Keeping a blog helps me navigate my way through different practices and world views. Phronesis includes pondering on the specifics and the universal. It follows on from my previous blog "Em duas línguas".

    More about my publications, presentations etc.
