Myspace is the Press's Space

The editor-at-large of the Seattle Times comments about the press use of social networking sites.
Make no mistake, reporters should and will utilize these sites for news-gathering purposes. People who post profiles, pictures and blogs in public places on the Internet are volunteering information about themselves, much of which never would before have been available to strangers, even those in the press.
