Is Digg and the Collective Power of the Internet Influential? If so, how do we – responsibly – utilize these outlets moving forward?

via: SF MOMA’s Press Room

Note the last paragraph:

“We have heard the concerns that have been expressed, and we hope that online discussion concerning SFMOMA can now return to focus on the terrific exhibitions we currently have on view and the many exciting public programs that we are offering to support them. We thank you for your comments.”

Whether I agree or disagree with SF MOMA’s statement and how they handled the situation, is a different story. Consider:

  1. Thomas Hawk told his side of the story.
  2. Called for action by ‘digg’ing his piece.
  3. SF MOMA responded.

The point is: they issued a statement.

So now, I wonder: Was this because of Digg? Is the collective power of the Internet / social media / social networking influential? If so, how do we – responsibly – utilize these outlets moving forward? Thoughts and / or suggestions, anyone?
