Rhizome.LA - LIVE FROM THE BLOGOSPHERE! Feb 15 7:30p

Sat Feb 15, 2003 00:00 - Fri Feb 07, 2003


Event Date: February 15, 2003 Time: 7:30pm

Panelists: Mark Frauenfelder, Heather Havrilesky, Evan Williams, Susannah Breslin, Doc Searls, Tony Pierce
Panel Moderator: Xeni Jardin
Event Location: Electronic Orphanage, 975 Chung King Road, Chinatown, Los Angeles

January 29, 2003 - Los Angeles - Rhizome.LA today announced the speakers and agenda for "Live from the Blogosphere!" on February 15, 2003, in which renowned bloggers and technologists will explore the online phenomenon of weblogs and their impact on American popular culture.

Co-producers Susannah Breslin, Xeni Jardin, and Beverly Tang--in conjunction with Rhizome.LA, the Electronic Orphanage gallery, and the Southern California Wireless Users Group--present this evening of panel discussions and a live "town hall" meeting on the past, present, and future of blogging.

Recently, blogs have been written about in The New York Times, Newsweek, and The Washington Post, featured in PBS television specials, deconstructed at conferences held at Yale University and the University of California at Berkeley--and new blogs continue to spring into existence every day. So, what’s all the fuss about? Why is the Blogosphere expanding so quickly? How will blogs change the ways in which we relate to each other on and offline? And, what’s a blog anyway?

"Blog" is short for "weblog," a frequently updated website run by an individual or a collective that features web links and personal commentary listed in reverse chronological order. After September 11th, the profiles of politically minded "warbloggers" rose to new heights; more recently, bloggers focused on the Trent Lott story before the mainstream media did. Today, the popularity of blogs is skyrocketing. But as bloggers gain in greater visibility, will the Blogosphere crack under the hype?

"Live from the Blogosphere!" brings together six innovators in blogging: Mark Frauenfelder, Heather Havrilesky, Evan Williams, Susannah Breslin, Doc Searls, and Tony Pierce. The panel will discuss the birth of blogging, the emergent tension between blogs and traditional journalism, innovations in blogging such as video-blogging, audio-blogging, and mobile-blogging, the shifting roles of race and gender in the Blogosphere, the state of the blog economy, and the way blogs may be reshaping contemporary media.

In addition, and in keeping with the immediacy and interactivity of blogging, members of the event audience are encouraged to blog live and direct from the Electronic Orphanage using an ad-hoc community WiFi network built exclusively for this event by the Southern California Wireless Users Group.
