Bloggers and Indie Media Unite!
Well, at least we met. I think everyone was kind of amazed at how many people showed up. I know I was.
So, we met.
We traded cards.
Cecil Bothwell live-blogged it.
The consensus is; we need to meet more. We need a "meeting" with a moderator, goals, flip-charts and power points.
We need it to be soon.
And we need it to be catered by 12 Bones... but that is a different story.
Some of the sticking points which will need attention include; standards, editorial re-use, and uniform content-management... or even the need for any of these things.
Having been through this in a corporate environment--more than once--I am interested in how a leaderless group will fare. Further, there are more new toys all the time.
I am sure there were issues which people wished they brought up.
And I am sure there were people in there wondering, "What the hell are they on about?"
All in all, it was a great first step.
I eagerly look forward to the next one. With or without BBQ.
And thanks to ABC for the pizzas!
