BlogTalk 2.0
July 6, 2004 2:15 AM   Subscribe

Blog to work? Blogging and journalism.
How do weblog posts fit in with the traditional journalistic procedures of subbing and editing?
Can newspaper weblogs ever really be part of the blogging community?
Should journalists be allowed to maintain personal weblogs?
Jane Perrone is giving a talk on BlogTalk 2.0 in Vienna today. This is v1.1 (sic!) of the Program. Summaries and rough notes from the Monday afternoon sessions at Blogtalk can be found here. Today's topics: After midnight. Weblogs and jam sessions and does talking about blogging suck?

The game is to be sold, not to be told. As a UC Berkeley journalism student I attended more "journalists talking about the Web" sessions than one would think humanly possible. They never really come to anything but the most cautious and unimaginative take on things, and you have to wait until someone really does use blogs for a new kind of journalism for them to understand the possibilities.

That's quite an accomplishment for a guy who hasn't seen his feet in years! :-)

Newspapers really seem to be actively trying to employ bloggers (I've applied for two such jobs in my area recently), unfortunately they don't seem to understand what blogging is so much as they think they need to have someone doing it.
