OK, time for one more quick one.... If you'd like to see a person who, in my estimation, is some sort of note taking savant, keep on eye on Nancy White's blog for Northern Voice. She can type words almost as quickly as they come out of people's mouths... Tags: nancywhite, northernvoice

How and Why to use RSS Scoble says he is 10 to 30 times more efficient using an RSS reader. With a reader, you only have to read the new stuff when you sit down, you don’t have to look for it. It’s all about putting your ideas, words and thoughts out there to be repurposed. USA today will not do it. RSS is not browser specific. You can have it in Outlook or a number of other applications. When he hears of someone talking about how bad IE sucks, he passes the info the IE product manager... 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

BBS05: DL Byron and D. Keith Robinson on Weblog Design

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

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

BBS05: Corporate Blogging: Strategy and Policy: Lenn Pryor and Matthew Oliphant

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

Robert Scoble is the keynote. His first point is that a blog is just a tool, like a drill. Dave Winer used Weblogs.com to keep up with blog traffic in the early days and looking for what is hot. 9/11 brought Dave and Scoble and about 30 other people together on IM to see how the blog world was reacting. Weblogs.com was the centerpiece for watching the news happen. Basically, a blog is a website that has posts in reverse chronological order. These are some of the things that differentiate...

I slacked on the last couple of presenters so I'm going to try again now. Halley is talking about all the things that help you get popular: Story Truth Passion Things of this world- keep it real Brevity- think about 12 posts instead of 12 paragraphs Freshness Voice Halley talks about Mena Trott and how she is a corporate blogger and highlights entries from Mena's blog from 2001-2005. They start very innocent and then move into the business side of Six Apart. The first time she heard about... Continue Reading
