Public Parts: Why It's Good to Share Online
December 08, 2011
Longtime PdF friend and prolific blogger, author and journalism professor Jeff Jarvis discusses his new book Public Parts. Topics include Facebook's efforts to turn "frictionless sharing" into an all-purpose enclosure of the Internet, which some are saying will "ruin" sharing, as well as the need for a new online "bill of rights" in the face of governments and corporations alike.
