Interested in what happened at BlogWorld? During the sessions, I sent out what amounted to a 15 page Word document, which added up to over 300 updates. This post covers the state of the blogosphere address & opening keynote with Chris Alden, Anil Dash and Richard Jalichandra who previewed Technorati’s State of the Blogosphere report. You’ll find all of my BlogWorld08 twoverage [tweet +coverage] here.
Thanks to those of you who asked me to share these updates, including Lynn Terry who writes the ClickNewz blog.
