I went for coffee with Jim Moore at Starbucks in Watertown, to talk about BloggerCon and other things. I asked what's most confusing to him about weblogs, and he said the infrastructure, things like Blogdex, Daypop, Technorati, search engines, etc. We talked some more, and I realized we should have a Day 2 session on this, so I just spec'd it out. The goal is to demystify the concepts that tie weblogs together into communities, and make it easier to edit the blogs, search them, find things that point to other things, etc. There's room for visionaries in this session. Where should we be going? Comments are welcome.

Two interesting items from the World Of Joi Ito. First, he's hanging out somewhere in Europe with my fellow Berkmanite Ethan Zuckerman. They're telling the GLTs about weblogs. Second, Ben and Mena are having a meetup in Madison Square Park in NYC next Sat. Maybe I'll fly down for the day. I use their product, and like it very much. We're looking forward to entertaining Joi when he visits Boston next week. He's coming to the BloggerCon local host committee meeting on the 9th. That extends the concept of "local" a bit, because Joi isn't from Cambridge, or even Arlington or Waltham. He's from Tokyo, but he's very local in the world of weblogs. Joi is coming to BloggerCon in early October and Halley is our newest presenter. I signed her up yesterday. We still have to write up the talk, it's going to be a dandy. I hear she's going to wear surgical gloves.
