From the Margins of the Writable Web
Meg Hourihan

Track: Social Software
Date: Thursday, April 24
Time: 3:45pm - 4:30pm
Location: Stevens Creek

This forward-looking session on weblogging examines what?s happening at the edges of the existing publishing network to try and forecast its future.

We?re all familiar with the standard weblog examples and uses: warbloggers and pundits producing political commentary, individuals connecting with friends and family, businesses using the format to speak more directly and honestly with customers. But these examples have become commonplace.

To get an idea of where blogging is headed, Hourihan moves beyond the traditional bloggers and familiar tools. Who?s using the format and software to do something no one anticipated? Rather than a top-down look at what should be happening, this session looks at fringe behaviors to see what is happening, and extrapolates where that will lead us. What will the future of blogging portend? Join us to discuss and find out.
