Blogging, Journalism and Credibility: Battleground and Common Ground?

So you’re not invited to the Jan 21 and 22nd conference at Harvard entitled “Blogging, Journalism and Credibility: Battleground and Common Ground?”
Neither was I.
The invitation-only conference is being organized by the Berkman Center for Internet and Society at the Harvard Law School, the American Library Association’s Office of Information Technology and the Shorenstein Center on the Press, Politics and Public Policy at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government and there’s a huge flap of chatter in the blogosphere about the invitees, the event, the issues and so on.
I’m interested to see the discussion notes from the event, but think some of the blogging comments give the whole thing more power than it warrants. This conference may be Harvard, but hey, that’s both a strength and a weakness.
Innovation usually comes from smaller, disruptive players, then the establishment talks about how they could have done that too, if they wanted.
Nevertheless, some brilliant people will be there and discussion should be very interesting–and impassioned.
