Weblogger’s BOF

I just got back from the Weblogger’s BOF, which had impromptu meetings going on for an hour past the scheduled end time. Lots of great discussion, not a lot of agreement. There seem to be several threads of discussion. I spent a bunch of time with Peter Provost & Chris Hollander afterwards talking about how to scale a news aggregator to handle thousands of weblogs. Scoble reads over 600 and I don’t know how he keeps up with it. I did have to convince Peter that weblog discovery is not the issue – if something gets posted in blogsphere of value, chances are someone you read will link to it. That’s the nature of a highly interconnected network like blogsphere.

To top it off, I got to spend a while chatting with Peter Drayton, who seems poised to return to blogging after a nine month absence. We chatted about Rotor, the CLR team, REST, ATOM and a replacement for Radio (dasBlog, of course). I think I’m going to need to spend a week on campus pinballing between offices once I get back from PDC.
