“We have a lot of people who wrap themselves in the mantle of free speech when they’re really just being childish,” said Tim O’Reilly, a Web pioneer who amended the draft of his bloggers’ code of conduct on Wednesday after a backlash of online posters cried censorship over civility.

civility enforced!11!

“The innovator behind the term Web 2.0.”

“The innovator behind the term Web 2.0.”
