blogging ethics panel around me, please!

It may be of interest that Donal Blaney is the only blogger I’ve ever heard of whose blog set a robots.txt file to stop the Internet Archive Foundation from indexing it.

Google’s Web-in-RAM systems are rather less fastidious than Brewster Kahle’s outfit (which invented quite a bit of the technology behind Google and other big clouds, like the containerised data centre). The site: command, for example, remains informative.

  1. He doesn’t seem to be disallowing it specifically (as of just now he has a disallow “/” – as of the archive’s copy he has a disallow of “/search” but not everything so I don’t see why the archive doesn’t have anything of that date.

    Lots of matching searches though, a bit of an obsession, methinks.
