many bloggers and blogreaders (bloggees?) may have not realized this, but a quiet moment in the history of the singaporean blogosphere was marked last week. as far as i know, convexset is the first person who has retracted a statement made by him about one of his superiors at work. in the wake of calls to dooce the unfortunate cz, this event marks a watershed in singapore blog history.
the question of whether convexset had to write that apology, or whether he did so willingly, or volunteered to do so from his own free will, is really secondary here. what matters is that he recognized that he had (unwittingly or otherwise) crossed over a hidden boundary in an angry mood and triggered a response from the big boss himself (convexset was thinking of becoming one of His scholars), and convinced him that he had written a post based on incorrect premises, and that he had written an apology and retraction. work and blog touched base and for the first time that i know of in the singapore blogosphere, provoked a less than enthusiatic response from the workplace.
Saw this issue raised at Acidflask initally. And is mentioned at, trompeloeil.
