Neglected Detail in the Blogger’s Code

Greg Laden, the well-known science blogger, mentioned in a post today a stipulation of the Bloggers’ Code that I must confess I was unaware of. He wrote, “it is against the blogger’s code to live blog someone else while they are unconscious.”

I was unaware of this, but I assume that it has implications for those who might be planning to live blog the upcoming Society of Biblical Literature conference. Unconsciousness has been known to occur, whether during papers or after late-night drinking discussion sessions.

Since I don’t know tweet I am unfamiliar with the Tweeter’s Code, so I’m not sure whether the same rule applies to live tweeting.
