I'm sure I can't imagine all the ways twitter could be used, but I suspect
they number in the thousands. Twittering is definitely more than taking
notes from a lecture. When I addressed this issue on the APG list---I was
addressing solely that issue. This discussion is not about whether or not
people should twitter from a conference (or twitter, period), but about
whether tweeting the points that a lecturer makes during a presentation is
ethical. Since my original post, I have seen another blogger's tweets from
the same conference that did not seem to infringe on the speaker's rights.
