It’s been a great day at Blogtalk DU. Lots of stimulating papers. As I said at the begining of my talk what really struck me was the notion of emerging contiuums of blogging practice and the tensions that emerge at the polar ends of these spectrums: the utopic on the one hand and the pragmatic on the other; the professional and the amateur; the intensely personal to the intensely networked; enthusiasms and disapointments; visionary early adopters moving into the first stream of mainstreamers. This is part of the emergent field. These are the creative tensions that we work with.
Look forward to more discussion tomorrow.
