The Internet Is a Public Place 1

There was a big fight, in the middle of the day in the middle of a neighborhood street and in front of at least two dozen witnesses. By the time police got there, though, nobody would tell them what had happened.

There was a time when that alone could have ended the police investigation. Not now.

Officers learned that a video of the incident had been posted on YouTube.

You can guess the rest of the story.

    BUT, there is a flip side.

    Yesterday on GMA, there was a woman who banked with BOA. Her interest rate, despite paying her bills on time, was hiked to 30%. She called, she wrote, with no response.

    She hooked up her webcam & posted the video on YouTube. Not long after, she got a letter from BOA that her interest rate had been changed to 12.99%.

    Sometimes, it does some good.
