TummelVision 16: Teresa Nielsen-Hayden and Scott Rosenberg the uber-tummlers tell us how it’s done


Episode Notes

Episode 16 Download the show

We speak with two great tummlers in this episode. Teresa Nielsen-Hayden is a science fiction editor and was the first boingboing comments moderator when they returned to comments in 2007. Teresa is also a blogger and the first person to practice disemvoweling online of the entire text of offensive posts.

Most important to us, she’s the original applier of the term tummel to social catalyzing in the web era (she discussed it with Kevin and then the three of us had a collective aha moment. See our story on the about page.)

Also joining us is early blogger, journalist, long-time Salong writer and editor and blogging historian Scott Rosenberg.
