BloggerCon IV is underway, with a live webcast. I'm at the 'unconference,'  which is being held at our CNET office in San Francisco. About a hundred blogger types have shown up so far for two days of discussion. Dave Winer, one of the original bloggers, is the force behind the event. Dave says there are no "users" at BloggerCon, just "participants."

Here's how Dave characterized the event on the BloggerCon site:

Think of BloggerCon perhaps as the "original" or old school blogging culture. Yeah, we've been kicked to the curb and dragged around. Starved and hooked up to scams and schemes. But we still stand for something. Later this month, for the first time in SF, we hope to find out what that is.

We don't have speakers, panels or an audience. We do have discussions and sessions, and each session has a discussion leader.  

Here is the schedule for BloggerCon. If you missed the live Webcast, I'll be posting the MP3 files from each session, as will others, including Dave. Here is the podcast of Dave Winer's opening remarks.
