Quote of the Day

“That’s why BlogHer was so revolutionary, not a word I use lightly. Over and over I was told how glad people were that I came. When I asked why, they said something that made a lot of sense. They were flattered that I was interested in what they had to say.
I needed reassurance that my presence was welcome, after a lifetime of being told to shut up. Gradually, if the door stays open, something great is going to happen. ”
–Dave Winer, working through ideas about sexism and gender, post BlogHer
Susan sez: Anyone who encourages open and equal conversation has my support–and I think Dave–and many of the men who came to BlogHer–were actively listening and looking to learn.
