In the words of Ron Burgundy...

... You stay classy, Blogging class! This was your finest night so far. I think the "Others" were impressed with your questions and ideas, and so was I. Nights like this one are why I teach. Thanks to the CT bloggers for showing up.

So ... what is your relationship to information?

This is a shameless plug for my own blog, but I just took some time trying to articulate what I meant about Romanticism and blogging because I'm concerned that I was misunderstood. I hope that'll help, 'cause I sure as HELL wasn't talkin' bout no Fabio. :)

First, it was great to participate in your class and I hope that everyone got something interesting out of the discussion. Colin's "relationship to information" assignment is a good one, I at least thought about it on the drive home. I thought I'd share some links with you: Daniel Gross, Bob Parsons, Lawrence Lessig. I offer these to show you different ways in which blogs work to extend the individual's brand. Also I was remiss in not mentioning the great James Wolcott, who generally blogs about what the right wing of the blogsphere writes about, which someone mentioned doesn't happen all that often. Vanity Fair reeled in his blog into their web site, which I think you will see more of "corporate media" engaging the power of the unmoderated blog world.

I have to say that after meeting all the different bloggers, I am eager to read more of their entries. The guests were articulate and interesting, and it's great to have faces to match to the screen names.

As to slothsinabox's post, I would encourage you to check out my long blog post on this at Greater Democracy.

As to my relationship with information, I'll try to get back to that a little bit later, but for the time being, let me simply say that I'm an addict.

I would go for the Classy T but lime green just isn't my color.

I'm late to the party, aren't I?
