I had the pleasure to meet a number of great folks at this year’s Kelsey Group ILM 2004 conference, including Judith Meskill. Judith was recently named Editorial Director over at Weblogs, Inc., which looks like a big win for everyone.
As part of her new charter, Judith is out looking for bloggers to join forces with Weblogs, Inc., as they push toward 100 blogs by the end of 2004 and 300 by 2005. A very intriguing opportunity, indeed!
In the same post, Judith also mentions that Pamela Parker (who I really wanted to meet at TKG’s ILM, but didn’t) predicts that user generated content and social networking will play a significant roll in the development of local search. As you can probably guess from Michael Bazeley’s article over at SiliconBeat.com, I agree!
