This forthcoming conference on Blogging, Journalism & Credibility is the talk of the blogosphere, at least the A-list segment.

Just for the record, as a blogger I would like to say: I am not a journalist!
Ok, this writing may appear in a (reverse-chrono) journal style, but the medium, content and purpose of this, and a very large proportion of other blogs, generally bears little relation to mainstream print/TV journalism. I haven't the time, energy or motivation to explain what should be obvious.
Ok, here's an analogy. This computer contains state-of-the-art digital technology (circa 2000), a lot of the time it's hooked up to the Internet. It has a keyboard and I use it to write things - mail, stuff like this, plans, code, notes, books, even shopping lists. But...that does not mean it's a typewriter.
What's more, one or two of the louder voices amongst this Kredibility Krusade Klan are the least trustworthy people I've ever had the misfortune to encounter. Laughing all the way to their bank.
