Announcements of our featured guest Robert Scoble seem to have created extra interest in the local blogging community: I’ve received excited RSVPs from folks who haven’t attended before. Which is always nice.
Also interestingly, I haven’t received RSVPs from many of the usual
suspects attendees. I’m not sure if this is a sign of the times or fallout from my not posting the signup sheets from BlogFest 4. I have them right here on my desk, and if I have time today I’ll post them and link them to the blogs of the attendees.
Incidentally, I’ve extended a personal invitation to the Post-Gazette’s book editor Bob Hoover — he pondered in a column this past Sunday whether he should join the blogging masses, and he seemed clearly on the fence about the whole thing. If he came to our little gathering, we could all share with him the wonders of the New Media Age. I encourage you to drop him an email as well, or give him a quick and friendly call. (His contact info is at the end of his Sunday opinion piece.)
See you tonight!
(No, it’s not too late to RSVP — do drop us a line at blogfest at closkey dot com if you think you can make it.)
