This Blog Sits at the: Bloggers vs. the old media (are they panicking yet?): “In the early days of regime transition, the incumbent (aka New York Times, Wall Street Journal) treats the new challenger (aka bloggers) with a certain high handed indifference. If acknowledgment occurs at all, it comes with a patronizing pat on the head, as in “Hey, aren’t the newcomers charmingly amateur? Welcome to the party. Now, run along and get me a drink.” More often, bloggers are not acknowledged. They just don’t matter.”

Which is exactly what I felt at WeMedia last week, although there are also the ones that *do* get it and they are entusiastic and willing.
