Elephants dance 2: Reuters pile on

Tom Biro posts about a forum hosted by Reuters next week on blogs and the media.
Sample question: Are bloggers journalists? Should they be afforded the same rights as journalists?
Jay Rosen and Dave Winer will lead a crew of corporate folk in what will no doubt be a familiar catcheism.
I will be in DC that day, or I would probably show up and sulk, maddened there were no women on the panel and annoyed at myself for caring.
This is how you know the bubble is back—corporate entities want to host discussions on topics that others have been discussing ad nauseum–only now that the bwanas are interested, they have enough muscle to get the natives dancing again.
Ouch, that was mean. Maybe the meanest post I’ve written in a while.
Time to cut back on the conferences, for sure.
