DEAR WORLD: SLOW DOWN

Getting back from holiday, it seems the blogosphere is continuing to explode. The hotel elevator had CNN on so I caught constant glimpses of the tsunami disaster, but was otherwise blissfully ignorant of anything happening outside of a few Chicago streets. I'm sorry, but I must respectfully demand things stop happening for a day so I can catch up, and perhaps do some cleaning.

For example, the videoblogging group rapidfires messages at me like bullets in The Matrix. Only I'm not "The One" so the bullets leave holes and now I'm bleeding. Soon I will consult The Oracle and also sleep on his couch. (See Vloggercon, above.)

Dan Gillmor said farewell to his newspaper gig and started a new blog about grassroots journalism. [Blogumentary will be screening at the U of MN J-school next month and Dan is scheduled to speak.] He links to the new Pew report on the state of blogs. It seems this blog thing is catching on.

Lots of conferences coming up: Blog Business Summit, Northern Voice, O'Reilly Etech, and of course SXSW 2005. (Which reminds me, I need to send SXSW a Blogumentary DVD in hopes of a joint Film/Interactive screening.)

Fimoculous and JD Lasica have probably posted about everything else important.

LOCAL NEWS: Whoa -- 89.3 FM snagged both Mark Wheat and Mary Lucia. With Thorn and Steve Nelson already at the helm, all they need now is Kevin Cole and Shawn Stewart to round out the old REV 105 gang.
