Techcerpt: Extreme Political Correctness in the Blogosphere

In last night’s podcast I talked a little bit about the marginal utility of extreme political correctness and how unchecked political correctness can cause too much focus on the small stuff and not enough focus on what really matters.

If you don’t want to listen to some great music before and after, you can just listen to the techcerpt.

Dave Winer, who I talked about in the techcerpt, has some similar thoughts, having had a lot of people spend a lot of time trying to correct his politics lately. Time that could have been spent on something far more important.
