Blog08 – a video patchwork of impressions

So I was speaking at Blog08 last Friday – here are my vlogged impressions upon my return…

…and here is a snippet of video to give you a taste of that A List Bloggers panel tackling, of all things, ‘Is blogging journalism?’ The American speaker is Loren Feldman – a reactionary trapped in a revolutionary’s body – the Brit is Pete Cashmore of Mashable.

Earlier Loren had delivered the second funniest speech of the day (the funniest being Hugh MacLeod of Gaping Void) – you can see Loren in full below. For all his contrariness, he has a valid point that “Facebook, Twitter and FriendFeed … are all services based on your fear”

…and finally, the day ended with vlogger Gabe Mac talking about, well, mostly himself. (The clip below gives you 5 seconds of it. For more see Marlooz’s video and pictures)

Overall, one of the best events of its type I’ve been to. Yes, the panel I was on was ridiculously rushed, and I was given an enormous picture of myself (presumably because that’s what every blogger wants?)…

Journalism versus/heart blogging panel

…but it was a place for great conversations. And what more can you ask for than that?
