I’m stealing a page (three actually, but only the headers) from Guy Kawasaki’s “What the Plus!” to post a short list of good practices and “rules” to increase trustworthiness online.
I’m not so hot about rules – you have to have some, you have to be smart enough to know when to bend or ignore them.
But you need standards, too.
I’ve tried to stick to many of these instinctively – they are not that different from what my mother taught me.
But I’ll repost them here, because they are useful in many situations – from blogging to self-publishing, to interacting with other human beings.
Here they come.
- Show up
- Make the community better
- Don’t be an orifice
- Keep it clean
- Trust others first
- Disclose your interests
- Gain knowledge and competence
- Bake a bigger pie
- Resist bad means
