As a followup to a previous post, no, Rupert, affecting an air of faux innocence does not count as a valid argumentation style in the adult world.

Wherefore Art Thou, Professional Ethics?

Mathew Ingram had a nice piece over at GigaOm discussing some of this year’s winners of the Pulitzer Prize focused primarily on the fact that prizes are now going to writers who publish online. There is no real difference, he suggests, between bloggers and journalists. Given the success of many software developers at writing and selling software on their own, the same argument could easily be made about the distinction between hobbyist and professional programmer.

Which leaves us in a bit of a situation, professional ethics wise.
