Ahh, sweet sweet juice, power, electricity. My laptop is now powered up via a direct line… on to the next event… Podcasting with Tod Maffin from the CBC. In the beginning, there was code- you could hit “publish�? and have a bad web site Then there were WYSIWYG tools, and you could hit publish and create a better page Then you have content management and blog tools. When you hit “publish�? it puts an RSS out into the world in addition to putting up a new web page. This evolution... Continue Reading

Community Blogging with Stephen Downes He wants reframe our thoughts on what a community is, what it constitutes online and in the blog world. What usually enables a community in the real world is proximity. In the online version, it is a “place�? online. The traditional model was to give them a site, a topic, they will talk and you can retire to the Caymans. In online learning- there is an assumption that it happens in a learning management system, or learning content management system... Continue Reading

I'm getting excited about going up to Vancouver this weekend for Northern Voice. I met a bunch of folks at the Blog Business Summit that will be there. I'm always looking for a good excuse to visit Vancouver- one of the coolest cities in the world, if you ask me. Sachiko and I will be making a weekend of it. I'm also excited to see the area around Seattle getting more events like this. I get tired of everything happening around the Silicon Valley and I'm hoping that we're at the beginning...

BBS 05 and Good Good People

Like so many good conferences, the Blog Business Summit was more about people than content for me. I enjoyed the presentations, but can’t say that I came away with a lot of new information. The presenters had a tough task- the room had both seasoned bloggers and people trying to figure out what a blog is and why it matters. With such a crowd, it’s nearly impossible to please everyone. It’s great to see Seattle as the venue for the first one. I felt a little hostly and asked some folks... Continue Reading

DL Byron and D. Keith Robinson. Design with blogs is different because there is a greater emphasis on the content. It's not just the look, but the way the site is designed in terms of the appearance of links, navigation bars, entries, static pages, navigation, etc. Writing style is part of the design- content needs design too. Writing proper titles, subheads, margins, line lengths. The BBS05 blog has 26 sub blogs and 4 authors. "Perfect is the enemy of the good". Byron is going through... Continue Reading
I came a little late to this one unfortuantely. Lenn Pryor is Robert Scoble's boss at Microsoft and Matthew Oliphant is from Business Logs At Microsoft, it can help you to be a blogger, so says Lenn. On comment management. Matthew only edits items that have mangled urls and deletes spam. Publish your policy and make sure your readers know it. Beware that disgreements can explode with people accessing blogs. "Who are you to be the spokesperson for me?". It takes skill to handle these... Continue Reading

BBS05: Remnant Notes

I became a less and less dedicated blogger throughout the event. I think it is because I couldn't listen carefully enough while blogging. I loved the process of going to google and digging up links to put in posts, but it kept me from listening. I think it's better for me to listen. This is freakin blog conference, I'm not the only one taking notes. I had some remnant notes that I'm posting below. Sorry that it's not more complete or organized... Chris Pirillo, Len Pryor and Jake... Continue Reading
I slacked on the last couple of presenters so I'm going to try again now.

They start very innocent and then move into the business side of Six Apart. The first time she heard about... Continue Reading
