Permanence, Changability and Online Publishing

A few weeks ago I wrote about an editor asking me to change an author’s bio in Anomalous issue 2. I sort of didn’t follow up, at least here, because I was still thinking it through. Now I’ve got a guest-post about it over at WriteByNight where I think I deal with the issue in perhaps a more thought-out way:

So there are a couple of issues this raises. One is etiquette. But the other, perhaps more interesting, is about medium and changeability. Because the web is a medium in which information not only can but is expected to change, to keep up-to-date, does that mean that information in web-format publications should be changed when it becomes out of date?

Read the whole thing, and comment on it, over at WriteByNight.
