Med 890 kilometer i timen blogger jeg nu derudaf via en Boeing-service i SAS-flyet. Jeg er på vej hjem til Danmark efter knap to ugers blogger-adventure i USA, hvor der dårligt har været tid til at referere de sidste dages interessante oplevelser i Seattle. Så undskyld og vær lidt tålmodige, der skal nok komme mere fyldige kommentarer her fra mit cockpit.

En præst i Pink Floyd t-shirt.

I morgen skal jeg møde Jeff Sandquist, såkaldt 'Technical Evangelist' hos Microsoft Corporation. Iført t-shirt med Pink Floyd-reklame prædiker han om åbenhed på nettet og opmuntrer de ansatte hos Microsoft til at blogge på livet løs. Jeff er Robert Scobles tidligere chef og en af hjernerne bagved Channel 9 og 10.
Channel 9 kombinerer video blogging, wikis, RSS med mere i forsøget på at bringe Microsoft og deres udviklere tættere sammen via dialog og umiddelbarhed. Channel 9 er inspireret af United Airline’s in-flight radiokanal af samme navn, hvor passagerer kan lytte med på, hvad piloterne og kontroltårnet snakker om.

10 er et helt nyt netsted for 'folk, der vil forandre verden ved hjælp af teknologi'.

The Wild West.

The blogosphere is the Internet's Wild West, a rapidly expanding frontier town with no sheriff.
And courts are now asked to crack down on bloggers and websites, says a frontpage story in USA Today.

Blogs er farlige. Brian Brown fra Pajama Market har fanget disse 10 myter om mindre virksomheder, der blogger. Myte 7 er min favorit: 'Blogs get companies into trouble.'

On my way to Seattle. I have just walked the favourite dog, Miss Willa, in New York and now I am in the Newark Airport. Tomorrow I am meeting and interviewing two very different Boeing bloggers about corporate blogging.
Randy Baseler is the lucky guy who gets to travel the world talking about Boeing’s perspective on commercial aviation. As vice president of marketing for Boeing Commercial Airplanes in Seattle, Randy is always meeting with experts, analysts, and airline customers, and talking with aviation and business media.
Adam Phillabaum is 24, works for Boeing as a database administrator and likes to write stuff. Adam graduated from the University of Idaho with a degree in Computer Science, and is currently working on his Masters Degree from Carnegie-Mellon.

State of denial.

'Blogs and podcasts may be the future, but for the time being the headlines are still coming from one of journalism’s big names, working in the fusty confines of a hardcover book', as the New York Times writes today.

Bob Woodward, the famous Watergate-journalist who brought down a president, has just completed his third book on the Bush presidency, "State of Denial." Woodward has spent more than two years, interviewed more than 200 people– including most of the top officials in the administration.

The NYT makes this comment:

'The actual journalistic accomplishment in “State of Denial” is less than grand. It took him three books to arrive at a conclusion thousands of basement-bound bloggers suggested years ago: that the Bush administration is composed of people who like war, don’t seem to be very good at it and have been known to turn the guns on each other. Such an epiphany doesn’t seem to reflect a reporter who had rarefied access. '

David Rosenthal, executive vice president of Simon & Schuster, the book’s publisher, makes this for us bloggers very, very interesting conclusion about the book in the NYT:

'A book has a much longer arc than one day. But it has been on sale for one day, it is already causing a ruckus, dominating the Sunday morning shows, and will determine the agenda for the weeks. It is interesting to me that in an age of blogs, Webs and texting that a book, something which is essentially a tortoise, very quaint in its own way, can carry the most immediacy.'
Fra massemedier til en masse medier. Magasinet eJour, der handler om journalistik på nettet har just udsendt et særnummer om blogging. En af artiklerne referer den svenske journalist og forfatter Jan Guillou for at sige: "Hvem bryder sig om anonyme menneskers pladder?". Hm. En del....skulle man tro.

eJour bringer ogsaa en fin liste over blogs, både danske og udenlandske, der især har interesse for journalister.
