Submission + - Bill Clinton bans Twitter, Facebook, etc at speech (latimes.com) 1

Dthief writes:

Bill Clinton has called for a ban on the use of Twitter, Facebook updates and any live blogging during his keynote at the Dreamforce Cloud Computing conference in San Francisco next month.

Considering tweets coming during Obama's state of the union address is this an unfair request in the least. Shouldn't people be given respect when they give a talk, its not like a phone call would be socially acceptable.

  • Given that live blogging has become the norm for most high profile events, it seems a bit odd that they would be banned a tech event with a high profile speaker. Normally live blogging is a great way to get free positive PR, after all, most people attend a conference because they are interested in the material being presented. It is almost as if he thinks that he is not qualified to speak to this audience...

The life of a repo man is always intense.
