BLOG08 starts in less than an hour and the program is full of rock’n’roll bloggers who will talk about the various aspects of blogging from different angles. Blogs are alive and kicking, in contrast to the provocative Wired article that once again declared blogs dead. Speaker Scott Rafer referred to the article as the “perfect linkbait.”
Hugh MacLeod summed it all up at last night’s BLOG08 speakers dinner when he drew one of his famous cards at the dining table “blogs aren’t dead, people are.” When being asked if he referred to the Wired article he said he was not thinking of the article when drawing but explained that he often draws from his subconsciousness.
