BlogTalk - A European Conference On Weblogs: Web-based publishing, communication and collaboration tools for professional and private use.

What is a weblog? A weblog is a form and a format: a frequently updated website containing entries arranged in reverse-chronological order. But this simple form is infinitely malleable, and weblogs have huge potential for professional and private use. Easily maintained via computer or mobile devices, weblogs are organizing businesses, creating and strengthening social ties, filtering the World Wide Web, and providing a platform for ordinary people to publish their views to the world.

BlogTalk 2.0 takes off

BlogTalk 2.0 started. We established the steering committee that will represent the goals of the conference. Likewise it will support the development of the mission and the call for papers and finally supports with the decision on which paper will be presented.

The overall goal of the conference is best summarized under the motto Xchange. The discursive exchange between developers, researcher and the community of user is our declared goal. This common discourse is the basis for a fruitful development and usage of weblogs both as a form and a technology.

The Steering Committe consists of: Torill Mortensen, the Schockwellenreiter (Jörg Kantel) , Peter Praschl, and Clay Shirky.

The new website will be online next week!

The time is nigh. The "BlogTalk book is on its way into layouting and finally it will make it to the press.
I guess it'll be ready to ship by the end of the year. Hopefully we get it out before Christmas.
