RTP Bloggers Lunch

I was fortunate enough to attend my first lunch with the RTP Bloggers group this past Monday (sorry for the delay in posting this). It was great to be able to sit down with people who share the same interest in blogging techniques, tools, and trends.

Here's a good chunk of the group:

This particular lunch was unique in that we were joined by Karen Mann, who's writing an article on blogging for the Raleigh News and Observer. Here's Karen discussing the finer points of blogging with Mark Pilgrim:

As can be expected, some of the bloggers there have covered the event:

In his entry, Dave wrote:
Frank was eager to answer the reporters questions about the future of blogging. Frank believes that blogging, or more accurately moblogging, will become pervasive. Blog entries will be shorter, often just pictures, or video snippets. Sony Blogman, right Joi? Frank also believes that, within five years, a talented author will blog some major event and the whole world will tune in... think Into Thin Air except written real-time by a moblogger. I'm not sure if those ideas are all Frank's or not, but I'm subscribing to Frank for more stuff like that.
Are those ideas mine? Well, "Sony Blogman" didn't come from me, but other than that, yes. Now that I've been outed, I have to write more about these memes while they're still fresh. I'll tackle the Into Thin Air idea first.

Anyway, as I said, it was great to meet so many people who share common interests... and who themselves are quite interesting. Thanks for having me as part of the group!
