BlogHer on Collaboration
Meant to post this yesterday, of course, so it was ahead of the fact instead of after the fact. Oh well. I spoke on collaboration, not organization!
From Hierarchy to CommunityElisa Camahort, Jory Des Jardins, and Lisa Stone of BlogHer discuss how three equal partners collaborate with each other and their community in a business world used to hierarchy. Join us as they explore ways that organizations can collaborate with and set their organizations on fire, building engagement and personal investment without descending into anarchy or creating a pretense of democracy.
Many of the attendees were also simply interested in blogging itself, why people do it, and how blogging impacts journalism...the usual blogging topics
It was a small but really smart crowd...and a new crowd. There wasn't one face I had seen before (I don't think) the folks worked for mostly non-Web 2.0 folks, but were definitely interested in the Web 2.0 phenomenon.
All in all a refreshing experience. It's always fun when Lisa, Jory and I get to play off one another. Despite Dave's devotion to a single Discussion Leader at Bloggercon, I think he would have changed his mind if he could see the three of us do our thang.
