I’m off this afternoon to San Francisco to attend BloggerCon IV, a gathering of people who publish on the web. This is turning into a tradition for me… I’ve attended the other three and didn’t see how I could pass up number four.
Dave Winer is the motive force behind these gatherings the first of which was held during his stint as a fellow at Harvard’s Berkman Center. His old colleague John Palfrey will be there tomorrow discussing how to make money out of blogging. One of Palfrey’s blogging interests is Top Ten Sources, where Halley Suitt is CEO. Here’s an interview Dave did with Palfrey around the turn of the year (mp3).
Our little corner of Second Street wil be alive with bloggers. Chris Pirillo and Ponzi will be there. Jim Zellmer from Madison was going to come, and I saw this as a chance to travel 2022 miles to meet him. Now it looks like he won’t be able top make it, so maybe I’ll have to make a local call this summer and introduce myself.
While the bloggers are gathered at CNet on Second Street, the rest of the city will be jumping celebrating LBGT Pride.
Perfect timing really… you have to be a little queer to be a blogger. And I must add… we’ve come a long way ladies.
