Perfect Path Podwalk #14

Covent GardenSo here it is podwalk fans, number 14 in a series of not enough. Yesterday I elbowed my way through the tourists along Neal Street, down James Street and into the Covent Garden Piazza. After a clockwise tour of the piazza, I arrived at the East Side for a street entertainment spectacular from Bruce.

If anyone knows Bruce, or knows any way of contacting him, let me know in the comments so that we can set up a virtual hat for listeners to this podcast to donate their two quid by paypal. Apologies for some of the raucous laughter and shouting, I quite forgot I was on mic at times! Pictures as ever on with the tag podwalk014

Blogging – a real conversation?

Tomorrow afternoon, I’ll stroll down to Soho for a New Media Knowledge event at zero-one.

“The trust people put in blogs, their simplicity and interactive character, and their ability to be aggregated via RSS have combined to grant blogs a unique status in the communications spectrum.

This event will examine the increasing importance and influence of blogs – as sources of trusted opinion and as a barometer of the shifting balance of power in media publishing.

Panel 1 – Is nano-publishing a new communications paradigm?
Sabrina Dent – Blogging vs traditional publishing
Rafael Behr – Blogging, journalism & the media landscape
Mike Beeston – Nano-publishing and the social-media revival

Panel 2 – Are blogs the new voices of authority?
Suw Charman – The myth of objectivity exposed
Johnnie Moore – Authentic authority
Adriana Cronin-Lukas – Blogs: ripping up the marketing mix?”

should satisfy my lust for more media-related blogworthy material. Hopefully get a podcast out of it too.
