Invited Speaker - Rebecca Blood

Filed under: General, Invited Speakers — James @ 10:48 am

We’re delighted to announce that our second invited speaker will be Rebecca Blood.

Rebecca Blood is widely regarded as the world’s foremost authority on weblogs. Her book, The Weblog Handbook: Practical Advice on Creating and Maintaining Your Blog, called “the Strunk & White of blogging books”, was chosen by Amazon as one of the 10 best books on digital culture for 2002. It has been translated into 4 languages. Her work has been used in university courses around the world. She has been featured in the New York Times, Newsweek, Fast Company, the BBC, and on National Public Radio; she was recently profiled by Time magazine. In 2003 she presented a keynote address in Vienna at Blogtalk, the world’s first weblog conference. She has maintained her own weblog, Rebecca’s Pocket, since April 1999. She lives in San Francisco.

Besides her book, Ms. Blood has written a number of critically important essays on the theory and practice of weblogs. She has been invited to write for the prestigious academic journals the Nieman Reports and Communications of the ACM. Ms. Blood serves on the Steering Committee for the South by Southwest Interactive Festival. She appeared at the 2003 PlaNetworks, a conference on sustainability, and organized a panel on Wikis at South by Southwest in 2004. In 2003, the UK’s Web User named Ms. Blood one of the Web’s “Hot Faces” (right between Beck and Bowie), and Sweden’s Internet World ranked her as one of the world’s Top Ten Bloggers. She was once Goth Babe of the Week.
