BlogNashville, including Bloggercon Tennessee & lots more: I’ve been sworn to blog-silence, so it’s nice to be able to point to the news about Blog Nashville, a Music City blogger Woodstock on May 5-7. I’ll be blogging way-too-much about this in coming weeks I fear, so I’ll keep this brief.
Robert Cox came up with the idea. Bill Hobbs hopped on and found an ideal co-host and venue: his blog-savvy employer, Belmont University. Blog rock star, Glenn Reynolds gave it insta-credibility by agreeing to chair the “selection committee” and to attend.
And Dave Winer blessed it by allowing it to include an official “bloggercon” unconference-conference on Saturday, May 6. I can assure all attendees of previous Bloggercons (I attended Bloggercon II), that those of us in Nashville want to make you feel especially welcomed and to have a great experience, both at the conference and at side-line activities (like the Saturday night (like at BCIII) “food for thought” small-group dinners designed to spread-out the A-listers and, well, mingle.)
Lots more news will be coming, but mark your calendars. Come in on Friday, heck, even Thursday, and plan to stay through Sunday. We’ll have lots for you to enjoy. Promise.
Update: Hammock Publishing is happy to be one of the underwriters of the event, but we’re going to adhere to the Dave Winer-school of not making a big deal out of the whole sponsor thing. We’re just happy it’s going to be in Nashville and that we can support it.
