Please do exercise caution – ‘it’s harder than hell to un-ring a bell’.

This “plain vanilla” blog site is a bit of a pain for search, extended discussion and editing. Still, its lack of features may be the deterent that keeps away a crowd that IMO neither you nor the crew that does post here cares to have here.

But, Reuters is nice enough to let me give other permission to run posts on a case-by-case basis. I don’t get paid in such cases, although Wired did buy me a drink once.

As for commenting, we know. We’re working on it.

BTW I find reuters to be unfriendly for commenting, which is why I don’t comment often here though I read your column regularly. First, the sign in popup box jumps up in a very annoying way on the small screen I usually use. I sign in with Google, but Reuters won’t remember that sign in.

I have the impression Ryan was not paid (though the economist might be). This seems to be a bigger deal, though one that’s negotiable in Ryan’s contract, than pure control of the context where the work gets seen.

Was it a “front of house” decision to republish these blog posts on Seeking Alpha/BI/etc? I assume Felix is considered a full time employee of Reuters and therefore don’t the rights of these blog posts belong to Reuters?

Most of my writing has been as an employee, or as work for hire as a contractor. The publishing side typically owns the rights and sydnicates at their convenience, and you’re right, editorial rarely if ever finds out. But under such arrangements it is not my call on whether something can be reprinted or reposted (although I have occasionally given permission that was probably not mine to give).

I assumed that Felix, Ryan, et al were also employees under similar arrangements, yet it sounds like at least Felix is not, or has arrangements other than work for hire. I’ve done work where rights revert back to me after a set period (typically 3-6 months), but most of what I write, and most of what economics bloggers write, ages rapidly and is often not usable later on.

Well done, lad – take the money and post.

About your concern #2 – disjointed comment streams. Seems like that would be a virtue rather than a problem. Cross-contamination of the threads is IMO a far larger concern than its opposite. Blog-commenters are a self-segregating crew – and like it that way, IMO.
