Ha’aretz has an article about the upcoming j-bloggers conference in Jerusalem. I believe it is quite informative as to the pros and the cons.
Overall, as I’ve said before - I think this conference should prove to be a valuable asset to both bloggers and blog readers. In theory it should help improve what bloggers do - which is write on just about everything imaginable. Some of us do good; some of us - bad.
Some of the more prominent bloggers - including yours truly - were interviewed for this article including those who will not be attending. Some of the comments are positive and some negative. If you want to see what we said, you’ll have to read the article.
Just want to add that not all of my brilliant comments were included. But there is a nice snippet there.
