I'M AT HENRY COPELAND'S PANEL ON MAKING MONEY, and the discussion is very interesting. (Best line: "Bloggers are the garage bands of the Internet.")
The two themes of this conference seem to me to be making money, and video. There are lots of videobloggers here, and the place is overrun with video cameras.
The big question from Henry: What do bloggers give people that other media outlets don't? Lots of interesting answers. The best one from John Cox of Cox and Forkum is that "we're having fun!"
Another line from Henry: "There are more political page impressions in the blogosphere than in the Washington Post and the New York Times put together."
UPDATE: Yes, the woman in the red sweater with the webcam is Tara Sue Grubb, the blogger who ran for Congress in North Carolina last time around.
