netiquette

As some of you are new to blogging, we should introduce here the topic of etiquette for blogging. The word etiquette implies “rules of conduct, courtesy, custom, convention, amongst the members of a group.” When applied to internet and networks, it is usual to call it netiquette.

Following the proper netiquette will help you to make friends and earn the respect of your peers. Below you will find some useful links along a few usual topics:

Blog Etiquette> Tips on how to behave in the blogosphere.

Linking Etiquette> How to link to other blogs, and vice versa.

Indiana University has a good article on “Some Simple Rules of Netiquette”

If you are into this topic you can find WWW version of the book Netiquette by Virginia Shea, published by Albion Books here

These are just a few resources. Most importantly I would like to ask each of you to offer a contribution to the netiquette of the group, that will help us to build a commonly agreed list of netiquette from all the contibutions. Please leave your recommendation as a comment to this post. Thanks.

About paula roush

I am a Lisbon-born artist based in London, UK. I am the founder of msdm, a platform for art practices that are mobile-strategies-[of]-display-[and]- mediation. It is a platform for both individual and collaborative work, shown in the context of exhibitions, publications, conferences and teaching/seminars. I work with photography, archives, found material and performance through editing strategies that investigate notions of authorship, authenticity, history and memory. I am interested in publishing as artists’ practice and as platform to explore the intersections between the roles of artist, editor and curator. My current projects look at ideas of (re) production in the work of art, resulting in publications in several formats that encompass the hand-made, the print on demand and the ebook.
