Check this out: Interactive Media Conference and Trade Show. They'll be discussiong blogging!

And look what the Greensboro News & Record is doing with blogs....

And another great discussion on buzz and the blogosphere..."The blogosphere is half forensic lab and half tavern," said Michael Cornfield, an adjunct professor at the Graduate School of Political Management at George Washington University and the chief author of the study.

Cornfiled didn't mention an astute observation of mine: that blogs with big comments sections often function like old usenet groups of the worst kind....the ones that deteriorated into being unmoderated flame-fests.

That's not community, that's conformity. No buzz when we're all saying "yes."
