Welcome to Blog World Jane and Tyler!

Rick Calvert, Dave Cynkin and I will be in Austin, Texas next week attending Spring Break For Geeks or more commonly known to many as a SXSW Interactive.  We will be setting up shop at the Techset Blogger Lounge Sponsored by Windows Mobile and organized by Stephanie Agresta and Brian Solis. We did our radio show yesterday on the trip we are taking and talked about all things SXSW with Tammy Lynn Gilmore and Brian and Stephanie and I invite you to listen in on that show but listening to the widget on the right under Blog Talk Radio.  We will be doing the show live from SXSW and giving you the on scene experience of attending the Blogger Lounge and about all the people that are there participating.  It will be the next best thing to paying for a pass and attending the event yourself.  Join us as we head to Texas for some Yee Haw!

“Why Am I The Only Woman Speaker?”

Author:

This was a great impromptu type presentation.  Kristina Halvorson was on stage and gave a talk on Web Content.  Then ended her talk and everyone clapped.  I thought wow 15 mninutes that was short. Then she walked back on stage, and said I want to talk about something else.

The title of this post is what the slide said as she told us what she wants to talk about.  This is a great eye opener.  Chris Messina and Ryan Carson are joining her onstage to discus not just the fact that all men are speaking , but they are also talking about diversity.  They are talking now about the "White Boy’s Club".

This is a talk that I want to talk about more and certainly something we are tuned into at Blog World Expo and what we can do about it.  I’m hoping we can get Kristina to agree to talk to us on our radio show.  I will try to flag her down to discuss this very issue.

Jason will be speaking at BlogWorld this year on several topics including the relationship between bloggers and PR people (boo hiss). Just kidding we love PR people at least the good ones. Jason has a good perspective on this being that he is on both sides of the fence.
