Blogs And Community

Ed Cone's column in this morning's News & Record provides context for the use of the web and blogs in planning an event like last weekend's HoggFest.

HoggFest was a community event that would have occurred under any circumstances. But the use of a wiki allowed the planning to be free flowing, devoid of meetings and committees, and blogs provided a substantial part of the publicity. I suspect the planning of HoggFest will become the model, no doubt with improvements as we go, for future community-based events.
