I'm about to release the first half of the Bloggercon Gang, recorded at CNET during lunch of the first day, with Doc Searls, Dan Farber, and Jason Calaconis. Jason is a trip and a half, talking as he was then focused on the rollout of the new Netscape and the rest of the media wars.

This media showdown is getting really interesting. In no particular order, some comments about some of the players:Mike Arrington -- Why on Earth is he keeping Marshall Kirkpatrick in such a visible position.
I was gratified to hear from Sun PR that the problem with Sun events invites has been fixed. Apparently I'll now be invited regardless of whether it corresponds to my beat area, which is a good thing because a) I have no beat area and b) I'm not really a journalist.
Where to begin...First, I'm chatting with Dan Farber about what's going on this coming week.
Adam Curry's mom passed away over the weekend. All of our thoughts and love are with you and your family, Adam.

Now that BloggerCon is over, I'm going to start releasing some of the backlog of Attention Deficit Theatre and Gillmor Gangs that have built up. Those who, like me, stayed in bed this morning and listened to the ConCast were treated to a remarkable string of interesting stuff, none of which would I want to compete with for your attention but rather support by suggesting you listen to the podcast versions available on the BloggerCon site.
A few months ago Hugh Macleod of GapingVoid fame joined the Gillmor Gang. Mike Arrington suggested Hugh produce a widget, and now he's gone and done it, as Mike reports on TechCrunch today.
Sitting in the back row at BloggerCon. Phil Torrone makes me feel old (in a good way) with his bouncy enthusiasm and MMOG vibe.
The last few days have seen a real ramp up of attention/gesture stuff. The combination of Bloggercon and Supernova this week and Gnomedex next week have brought many of the constituents of the so-called Attention Economy into view.
