Ambassadors of blogging
: Jay Rosen just put up his notes from his Davos trip:
The one clear role I had here was ambassador for the weblog form. Experts at this are Joi Ito and Loic Le Meur, both of whom joined me on the blogging panel. Joi even told me at last night’s closing party that he would like to take a year off from everything and just blog, by which he also meant spread the word.
Amen to that, blogging brothers. There is an admittedly cultish desire to spread this gospel, now that it is in the vulgate. There is a populist motivation to share the power this medium brings. And there is just plain excitement about being involved in something new. As Andrew Sullivan said: “I say this happens once in a lifetime: You don’t stumble across a new medium every day.”
