The weekend before last I attended a two-day conference in Denver entitled Thin Air Summit ’08 (#tas08 on Twitter). I called it the Geek Conference for short. Rooms full of techy people talking about Web 2.0 stuff (social networking, video, podcasting, blogging, etc.) and introducing themselves by their Twitter names. I felt oddly out of place, yet there I was. I guess I was one of them.
Super blogger and Twitter aficionado Amy Gahran presented a session at the Summit on blog writing. One of the first points she made is an excellent one: That you should think of your readers as community rather than an audience. And that is where we begin today’s newsletter.
