I am not really sure why rules that apply to print journalists would not apply to bloggers. If you promise to keep something off-record, then you do so, if not, then not. If something said off-record kindled your interest and you write an article/entry related to that thought, well, why not?

Rest assured, I did not find any specific business ideas to pilfer in your writings :)

Actually, it's gotten to the point where I'm used to people telling me something and surrounding it with "this better not appear on Techdirt" or something like that. I try to be careful to ask for permission if I'm going to use something that someone told me that could directly impact them. Otherwise, I try to make sure it's vague enough that it's clear I'm not revealing any sort of confidential info.
