I was talking with Dvorak at the Vloggercon party this evening, and he started telling a story about how he deliberately pisses Mac users off to get flow for his stories, and I said, hold a minute, I want to record this, and shit if he didn't stop and repeat it for me and my video camera. I guess now I'm an official video blogger.  Permanent link to this item in the archive.

My EV-DO cell phone works again, I'm posting this from the lobby of the Mark Hopkins Hotel on top of Nob Hill. Pretty great view. Nice to be mobile again. It was a wire-trip at Sprint, the phone needed to be re-provisioned. Lots of time haggling with Sprint people. But I get to use it until October. Happy.  Permanent link to this item in the archive.

Marianne and Rebecca of CNETWe had a pre-BloggerCon meeting at CNET today with Dan Farber, Rebecca Doran and Marianne Wilman to go over everything from webcasting to food and power strips. I also took new pictures to give people a way to visualize the conference, coming up two weeks from today. Gullllp.  Permanent link to this item in the archive.

A picture named bowler.jpgBased on who signed up, this BloggerCon is going to be great. I sometimes forget, or maybe I never really knew, that BloggerCon is itself a community. There are people who will travel across the country, or from Europe or New Zealand, to be part of the community. Three people from Nashville are coming, Rex Hammock, Nick Bradbury and Terry Heaton. I've got an offer out for a DL to lead an Emotional Life discussion, following in the footsteps of John Perry Barlow and Julie Leung. Let's hope that one comes off. Blogs are about more than brands and business models, we hope. I had another talk with Jay Rosen about his session, he's planning something really special. And then Mike Arrington is going to lead a discussion on a topic that might surprise some. I want to find our idealism again. The video bloggers never lost it, their conference is this weekend, also in SF, I'll be there. Think of BloggerCon perhaps as the "original" or old school blogging culture. Yeah, we've been kicked to the curb and dragged around. Starved and hooked up to scams and schemes. But we still stand for something. Later this month, for the first time in SF, we hope to find out what that is. Permanent link to this item in the archive.
