Bay Area Bloggers meet up was fun and informative

The meet up of San Francisco Bay Area bloggers was both historic and meaningful. The executives at KRON4 got a chance to meet and hear from over 120 bloggers, each of whom got a commemorative T-shirt, lunch and a good time just meeting others of the same mind. It’s the start of a new era for KRON-TV, as they reach out to the local blogosphere to be of service and to hopefully redefine TV news in the Bay Area.

On a personal level, I got to hook up with some friends and make new ones. Local blogospheres are all unique, but people are people. The passion, the energy and the really thoughtful people make for interesting and entertaining conversation. I am better for this, and I’m proud of my client for hosting the event.

Here are a couple of photos. This one, I think, helps define what’s happening. Stanley Roberts of KRON4 shoots video of the event alongside J.D. Lasica, also shooting video of the event:

Stanley’s day job is a news photographer, but he’s also the founder of we8there.com, a fabulous citizen’s restaurant review site.

Finally, here’s a shot of one of my favorite people, Chris Nolan. I like this shot so much, because she looks like the Cheshire Cat, which is actually a very fitting description. Sharp, witty and tough, Chris has a persuasive charm that can be quite irresistible.

“But I don’t want to go among mad people,” Alice remarked.
“Oh, you can’t help that,” said the Cat: “we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad.”
“How do you know I’m mad?” said Alice.
“You must be,” said the Cat, “or you wouldn’t have come here.”
