You Have The Power To Send Me To BloggerCon 2003

So Dave Winer is having a $500 a head conference at Harvard called BloggerCon 2003. He’s looking for participants on a Technology Panel, and I thought – hey I fit that description. Why not…

From his announcement:

I don’t want “how I did this last summer” narratives, I want sweeping conclusions, “the industry is failing at this,” or “users would pay for this, but no one is supplying it.” Or whatever it is that users have to say about the state of the technology. I want opinionated big-thinkers, who happen not to be vendors.

So what I’m looking for are three or four people who fit this bill:

1. They’re fully knowledgeable about the technology behind weblogs. They’ve peeked under the hood, seen the content management system, written a few macros, installed plug-ins, edited the database without breaking the blog. They are fearless and smart about the technology. They are not vendors.

2. They’ve used two or more different blogging tools. The more the better.

3. They have a weblog that’s fairly well-read and fairly long-lived.

4. They have never advocated on behalf of one tool.

Please let me know if you know someone who fits the bill. I’m trawling for recommendations.See you immediately thought of me didn’t you? If not, shame on you. Anyway, I leave it in your hands; if he hears enough voices perhaps he will invite me. If you contact him and I get invited there’s probably a conference goodie bag item with your name on it.

Send Dave a recommendation via private e-mail or via a comment to the post.
