I came across a Forbes story today entitled “Vox Unpopuli.” It talked about how more and more people are using websites to publicly voice complaints about a company’s services.
While I did not develop my personal site to become critical of the Peace Corps, it might become so. Several of you have suggested that I make my Blog (this Monologue) open to the general public again. Some of you have also suggested that I publicly post my case for appealing the Peace Corps’ decision to end my service early.
Although it would be satisfying to do so, I believe that I’m going to wait to take such actions until after I have heard the outcome of my request for reinstatement. Should it become an unfavorable outcome, I would then have little to lose in making my site completely public once again.
Here are a few excerpts from that Forbes’ story. Enjoy.
