Bloggercon IV: In the Heart of the Beast?
Jay Rosen has summed up his thoughts on Bloggercon III over on Press Think (BloggerCon III: Notes and Observations on the People of Moore's Law). He makes a very good point (among many):
In my view BloggerCon is not a tech conference--it's about democracy, and the blogger's "producerist" vision of it--but I am perfectly happy when others define the event differently.
Blogging, re: self-expression, is
about democracy. When we realize that we can be creators as well as "consumers" we are more free and responsible for that freedom. Read the whole thing.
In any case, I was lucky to have the opportunity to meet Jay Rosen face-to-face and talk about some of the issues we've discussed via blog postings and comments, as well as Jay Rosen's view of Bloggercon. Part of these discussions took place over dinner with Zack Rosen (the very interesting and bright nephew of Jay), Mary Hodder, Peter Hirshberg and Doc Searls, who wrote about the dinner here: Dinnercon.
While I agree that a RosenCon would be very cool, I do think that Jay Rosen should take on the mantle of putting together a producerist Bloggercon IV. And why not in the news media capital known as New York City?
