Listen to the Economist podcast on Davos this year. They talk about blogging hype at Davos and that this year, “they’re pushing its demographics in a doubful direction.”
The world economic forum is promoting a blog fest for the big wigs. Is blogging a suitable activity for a company boss? and should chief executies blog?” he asks, “especially with 24 heads of state or government, a smattering of royalty and celebrities present?” They weave in references and insight from Seth Godin, Jeff Jarvis and Arianna Huffington. The podcast host is clearly reporting from a place of fear and old school thinking, as if blogging is still about people at home in their pajamas.
