San Francisco blogger meet-up

I’ll be leaving Nashville tomorrow en route to San Francisco and meetings galore. But these meetings will be fun, and one will be historic.

On Saturday, I’ll be part of a meet-up of Bay Area bloggers sponsored by KRON4 (disclosure: a client of mine). We’re expecting 150–200 bloggers from throughout the region for an afternoon of getting to know people and listening to what they have to say. We had a similar meeting in Nashville in February, where WKRN-TV began its journey into the blogosphere. The local blogosphere here has doubled in four months, and WKRN now sponsors several blogs and hosts Nashville Is Talking, a unique site that aggregates the local blogosphere through both technology and the eyes of writer Brittney Gilbert.

As I’ve written here before, most local media entities aren’t fully aware of the community that’s building around them in cyberspace. Their response should be to listen and join in the conversation — definitely NOT attempt to bully their way in.

My blogging will be light for the rest of the week, but I’ll hopefully have a lot to say when I return late Sunday.
