Susie’s going to be speaking at BlogHer on Friday, 9 to 11:30. If you only go to ONE session at BlogHer, definitely go to So You Have This Crazy Idea. It’s all about how to build blog sites that engage and build community.
Susie’s going to be covering the technology part of the discussion—the other panelists are a lawyer, a consultant, and an entrepreneur. (Well, take those labels witha grain of salt—none of these women are describable in a single-word!)
Meanwhile, I’m headed to Wikimania in Cambridge, MA, the next weekend Aug. 4-6. It’s all about building wikis, and also about wiki building. I find wikis fascinating—I could sit back and watch people build them all day.
But I’m going because there’s a real application for wikis in what many of Hop Studios’ clients are doing. And, there’s a great extra-day seminar on Aug. 7 led by Dan Gillmor, which is all about Citizen Journalism, and I’m really looking forward to participate in what’s going on there. The other bonus is that our new employee Matt Gardner has just moved to Boston and we’ll be able to meet up.
