I didn't attend for multiple reasons:
1) I found out about it Friday Afternoon.
2) I had plans for Friday Night.
3) Said plans involved a party hosted by women. Chicks before Geeks.
4) It sounded like a big advertisement for FOX13's fake "blogs."
Davis Didjeridu went, and has this to say:
So the Fox 13 Blog-a-palooza was a complete joke. It was mostly Fox's web team, a few reporters, and their families. Much of the discussion was how cool myfoxutah.com was compared to the previous site. I admit that it is a vast improvement over their previous crapfest of a website, but it's nothing revolutionary. It appears every Fox station across the nation has a myfox_____ website, and therefore lacks the personal feel that KSL's website has captured.
I've been pondering this for a week, and I compared his report to our experience at the Utah Bloggers convention, along with the Davis Bloggers group that met last month.
And I got to thinking.
Maybe it's time to have annother big meeting. Have a panel or two that isn't near as tech-based as the last one.
So, what do you say? We could show the people at FOX what real bloggers look like.
