Global Voices Part 2
Here is a list of random highlights of the Global Voices London Summit that I will add to from time to time:
- Sitting in a room all day with Oscar-winning actor Richard Dreyfuss and not recognising him. This really draws a line under the debate over whether bloggers are journalists. The answer is clearly - they are not. Journalists are supposed to notice this kind of thing. The Guardian's Jane Perrone certainly did.
- Meeting bloggers face to face, particularly Ory Okolloh of Kenya Pundit (see picture taken by Beth Kanter) who I have read for ages. We were both recorded having a conversation about the times when you just don't want to blog by Ben Walker of the Theory of Everything which should be published as a podcast soon.
- Finding out about the new centres of world blogging - Cambodia, Jordan, China and India.
- No PowerPoint presentations. A conference first.
