Blogger Meeting

Dave Winer is in Greensboro and led a discussion among bloggers and would-be bloggers at the News & Record last night. It was humbling to have one of the pioneers of the genre asking questions and genuinely listening to the answers of traditional and citizen journalists, many of whom have just started blogging.

I was struck by Dave's use of the term triangulation. As an engineer, I have used triangulation in various applications, but it seemed particularly appropriate applied to blogging, since comments among diverse participants often zero in on points of agreement.

Ed Cone noted that many bloggers in the room blame him for giving them the blog bug, but he blames Dave for the same. It was a great discussion and nice warm up for Saturday's Triangle BloggerCon.

Brian Russell of Audio Activism was kind enough to podcast the discussion. I encourage you to listen to it here.
