The Independent Weekly: Winners, quitters and bloggers

Triangle bloggercon and more

Building community--both online and offline--is the theme of the conference. Zuiker hopes the Triangle will develop the kind of community that's been going strong in the Greensboro area.

The conference is free and open to the public. It starts at 9 a.m. and officially ends at 12:30 p.m., though conversations are sure to follow at Franklin Street eateries. Special guest Dan Gillmor, a blogger from the Bay Area who's become an evangelist for grassroots journalism, will also give a free public presentation on Monday, Feb. 14, at 3:30 p.m. in Carroll Hall at UNC-CH.

Patrick Eakes reminds me that the legend himself, Mr. Dave Winer of DaveNet, Scripting News, and Harvard Shorenstein, is also slated to attend.

A splendid time is guaranteed for all...
