There is a good review in the Guardian by Simon Waldman of Dan Gillmor’s new book on the impact of blogging on journalism, We The Media. And the Guardian is also raising the profile of the British blogosphere for its readership with a competition for the Best British Blog.
Closer to home, the SOOB (Straight Out of Brisbane) Festival, on here in Brisvegas from December 2nd to the 14th, has a few panel sessions with bloggers Anthony Lowenstein and Tim Blair. Unfortunately, SOOB haven’t taken the opportunity to ask any actual Brisbane bloggers to participate, but the festival still looks like it has lots of interesting things for those interested in politics, the media, culture and the creative industries. The full programme is on the web.
UPDATE: John Quiggin is participating in a SOOB hypothetical on a post-WTO World on Thursday at 11am. It’s at 30 Misterton St (off St Paul’s terrace). I have no idea where that is, so don’t ask me, but apparently you can email email@example.com for a map.
