Today I had an appointment with the district’s CIO, Joe McBreen. I was invited to the appointment to discuss my Twitter account: @SVVSDNews. It was a very cordial meeting. In essence, he gave me some very friendly advice that it would be in my own best interest to change the branding and account name to avoid confusion.

  1. One of the things I found interesting about this meeting was the concern expressed about the Google AdSense displayed on the SVVSD News blog. It was specifically mentioned that it was not a good thing for the district’s competitors to be advertised on a site that could be mistaken for an official site. Bearing this in mind, I have removed the ads widget.

    Philosophically, I do find it weird for a public entity to be concerned about private competitors.
