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 mingled.
We traded cards.
We drank.
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!

i definitely agree about the 12 bones and the rest is right too...

So what the heck happened with the card? Were you able to format it and have it work now or is it toast?

It seems to work okay after a bunch of formats. Those two pics are the only ones I could save.
No idea why.
