Heading Home

I fly home tonight and won't be posting any more about Bloggercon until Wednesday - but will be gathering together my thoughts and drafting my posts offline at 35,000 feet.

However, to keep you going until then, and as an interesting taster about some of the philosophies behind blogging, check out Mary Hodder's summary of her session,
Core Values of the Web

Oh, and I didn't understand the phrase 'wuffie-hoarding' either and have asked Mary for a definition for us limeys. However, might be fun to speculate on its meaning. Any suggestions? Click comments and fire away...

I might be wrong, but I think 'wuffie' is a version of WiFi...

Hi Frank,
I think Wuffie hoarding would be when someone collects lots of wuffie, or good will/links/attention for themselves, but they don't give attention/links/good will to anyone else, or just to the few that they want to get the attention of (by linking to them, knowing they'll see it the inbound links)... it's kind of like social climbing online. It's the opposite of having real conversations with people, and talking with them about what you really care about, and about what they really care about, to come up with something interesting or useful.

Really great to meet you this weekend!
