On Tuesday I join the Bebo Generation at BlogTalk

Sigh. The local free newspaper, The Cork Independent, covered BlogTalk 2008 here in Cork and lead with the headline, “Bebo Generation descend on Cork”. Bebo? *mutter* *mutter*

Anyway, I’ll be sitting on a panel titled, From blog-style commentary to conversational social media which pretty much spans the entire blogging and social media experiences. On the panel with me will be Stephanie Booth who I have conversed with a few times on IRC but never met, Bernie Goldbach who I have met a number of times and always has something interesting to say, and finally, Jan Schmidt who I had never heard of but his bio suggests someone who will know a lot about the topic of social media!

How do I feel about the current crop of social media sites? I quit Facebook! Well, no I didn’t, but I will, soon!

  1. Hey Donncha!

    I think you did at least see Stephanie at WordCamp, or at least were in the same room at different times!


    I hope you are doing fantastic!

    I am writing a Press Release to go out tomorrow morning California time, which is tonight for you!

    If you get this, could you send me an e-mail. I am writing about WordCamp and Matt, and I want to make sure I get it just right as to who the founder or founders of the software are. Wouldn’t want to step on any toes Don’t cha know?

    I hope to see you again this summer.

    Please e-mail me if you get this right now.

    Much Love,

  2. David – good catch! Unfortunately I was fast asleep when you commented!
    WordPress was mainly started by Matt Mullenweg and Alex King who based their work on the original b2 blogging software.

  3. Didn’t know about the dinner! (Should have looked at the programme more closely!)

    Unfortunately Monday nights are bad for me and there’s the usual problem of getting a baby sitter! See you tomorrow though. 🙂

  4. I’m sick of them all too. On facebook you get spammed by friends and on bebo you have adverts that scream at you… have you seen those smiley banners…drive me nuts they do.
