News & Opinion: Back from Seattle

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 4:00 AM – Filed under: Marketing & Sales

I am back from the Business Blog Summit and have been busy catching up today. I liked the conference and thought they had some good content.

I got a chance to page through a book by Biz Stone called Who Let the Blogs Out? I think it is a great primer and history for those who want to get caught up on the blogging craze.

A blog is a collection of digital content that when examined over a period of time exposes the intellectual soul of its author or authors.

That quote explains why it was so easy to talk with people at BBS you have never met in person. You already knew them through their blogs.
