Baseball or no baseball, we're on for tonight's weblog-writer's meeting at Berkman. We'll talk about webcasting the meetings. And having people other than me moderate. I won't be at the next two meetings, but I want them to happen anyway. Should be interesting.

In the aggregators session on Day 2 at BloggerCon I promised Jenny Levine that I would write up my plan to empower librarians and scholars to build distributed Yahoo-like directories, with the key ingredient that makes the Web work so well -- competition. The idea is for geeks and librarians to work together, a dream of mine for a long time.

"It sometimes seems we have a world full of bloggers and that blogging is the future of journalism, or at least that's what the bloggers argue, and to my mind, it's not clear yet whether blogging is anything more than CB radio. And, you know, give it five or 10 years and see if any institutions emerge out of it. It's possible that in the end there may be some small subset of people who find a livelihood out of it and that the rest of the people will find that, you know, keeping their diaries online is not the most useful thing to with their time." He's not listening.
