Seattle PI reporter John Cook covered the Seattle MindCamp and apparently quoted Tara Reid (oops–Tara Hunt!) out of context–reporting that she said she’s into Web 2.0 for the parties and the beer, provoking outrage and hurt.
Scoble notes the misstep, Liz Lawley calls it out, and Tara sets the record straight.

Susan sez: Okay, I think it’s both–but the best last word comes from Adam Kalsey who says:”Not that it will make you feel any better, but Tara, you’re my marketing hero. A month ago I’d never heard of Riya/Ojos or you. As a result of your blog, community building, and networking at parties, I hear about Riya several times a week.”
