Report from the PDF

A picture named bj.jpgI'm finally ensconced in a seat in the auditorium at Pace University in NY listening to Lee Rainey talking numbers. Millions of people do this. Millions of people do something else. The median age has risen from 33 to 39. It's a lot less white. But it seems we could read this on the web and be a lot more comfortable. Permalink to this paragraph

People are dressed much better here than the typical California conference. Lots more women. ALready schmoozed with lots of people who it was good to see. Jay Rosen, Jeff Jarvis, Craig Newmark, Salim Ismail. I have Alzheimer's, I know this because I've been confused by three people who knew me who I didn't recognize. Two of them were very attractive young women. I'm losing my mind.  Permalink to this paragraph

Sitting next to Ed Cone. I explained that he was lucky that I actually recognized him.  Permalink to this paragraph

I've already sung his praises, as the godfather of Greensboro blogging, a legendary small North Carolina city that probably has the highest per capita blogging population than any other comparable city in the US. Permalink to this paragraph

Ed Cone: "Guy in tie at podium w/slides == death." Permalink to this paragraph

Please, no more presentations! Permalink to this paragraph

How about a discussion. This conference desperately needs to adopt the philosophy of the medium that it covers. If you're reading this in the room and agree, please cover your mouth and cough three times. ;-> Permalink to this paragraph
