To my mingled pleasure and freaked-out chagrin, one of my articles has just been Slashdotted.

I've been Slashdotted before, but always as a marketing or communications officer, ghosting for an executive. That meant that, if anyone was criticized, it wasn't me.

I don't mention this to boast. In fact, I am not sure that I entirely welcome the development. But I suspect my discomfort is due to all the years of anonymity as a tech-writer. I'm used to taking responsibility for my work, but only in-house and without my name attached.

It's disconcerting to be working under new rules, although I suppose I should have expected them.
