Yesterday, I posted a letter I sent to the Appleseed project.
I’m happy to report that “Info@appleseedinfo.org” forwarded my letter on and I am currently engaged in a dialog with a person from the program who seems genuinely concerned about straightening this whole misunderstanding out.
I’m not going to post the e-mails yet as it is still an ongoing conversation. He’s busy with a shoot this weekend, but has assured me that the conversation will resume next week.
I’m very encouraged by his candor and willingness to listen. I think this whole thing has been handled relatively badly by both the Appleseed people and by the bloggers involved and we can all learn something from it.
Here’s to hoping that we, as a community, take full advantage of this learning opportunity and become stronger for it.
