WNBC Blogger's Summit

blggerssummit.jpg
Last night, WNBC.com held what they called New York’s First Bloggers Summit. From the article:

The purpose of the NYC Blogger Summit was to get a dialogue going between bloggers and WNBC. The ultimate goal is to work together in the future by sharing news, information and giving additional exposure to stories that are important to New Yorkers on blogs, Newschannel 4 and WNBC.com.

Some bloggers who attended saw it differently.

From Poor Impulse Control:

After an endless series of corporate self-congratulation talks and phony thank-yous, someone finally came to the point of this summit: to get bloggers to provide NBC news with hundreds of unpaid stringers and free stories. Hey, people who write for the love of the work should do it for NBC for the love of the work.

From Brilliant at Breakfast:
The suits still not only believe that simply bringing in "blogger content" wills somehow make their own online endeavors magically work, they also believe that "credit" from a conventional news web site that they have already admitted few people visit is hardly an inducement. Needless to say, "cash for content", at which point a few people in the room other than the twentysomething goths and other assorted late adolescents sprinkled around the room might pay attention, was never mentioned.

That’s OK, we who hang out on the net can get plenty of information whenever we want it, and we know where to get it. (via Simply Left Behind)
