[fr] Bloguer, c'est une histoire d'expression personnelle. Une discussion lors de la rencontre BlogCamp à Zürich.
*Notes from blogcamp.ch presentation. May be inaccurate.*
*(steph-note: it’s a discussion, so a bit hard for me to blog — particularly as I’m participating.)*
Why do people blog? Different reasons. Asking the audience. [Blogging isn’t about blogging](http://uncondition.blogspot.com/2007/03/tomorrow-barcampswitzerland.html), it’s about expressing yourself. It’s about personal expression.
Blogging is about communication.
It’s a evolution (from a communication point of view, the biggest since the printing press): **instantaneous** access to a **global** readership. Being *heard* is a different bag of beans.
Another element of revolution: community. A single blogger with hot news means nothing and achieves nothing, before the network comes into play to make the news float to the top.
Blogging: technology (easy!!) and culture (more complicated) *steph-note: exactly what I try to explain to my clients…*
Shift of power. For Dannie, it hasn’t really happened yet, except some small cases. cf. phase transformations in chem/physics. My comment: the shift has already started happening, it’s not because it hasn’t impacted events the mainstream press reports on much that it doesn’t mean it’s having much impact.

Thank Steph! It was a great discussion, and I think that you got the important points down. This is just the beginning of the conversation. I do look forward to continuing it.
