A blogger's store in NYC?
By Dave Winer on Monday, October 18, 2010 at 6:13 AM.

A picture named coffeeBag3.gifEvery time I pass an empty storefront this nagging idea keeps coming up, so I thought I'd better write a blog post to get it out of my system. permalink

Let's talk about what I call a blogger's store. It's a place where bloggers visiting NYC can hang out and meet with other bloggers, from NYC and elsewhere, while they're visiting town.  permalink

Think of it this way. When an author comes out with a new book they show up at book stores all around the country to read passages from the book out loud and to sign people's copies. This is the same idea, applied to blogging, which is a kind of writing after all, but different. permalink

I know the usual problem is how do you keep the quality up. That seems so much in the eye of the beholder. I guess there would have to be a curator, a sort of editor-in-chief who puts together the program.  permalink

One thing is for sure, whenever we come up with a way to make the blogosphere show up in realspace, something interesting happens. permalink

PS: The idea would work elsewhere, of course, but I think of NYC because I live there, and it's also the biggest city in the US. :-) permalink
