Thank you, rockstars

What a blast! I think it’s fair to say we lived up to the rockstar theme folks. You and 249 others rocked the Pakhuis de Zwijger the whole day.

We’ve been reading articles and tweets about BLOG08 all day and I think we can draw a few conclusions:

  • Dutch people aren’t into monetizing their blogs. Why would they? There are only 16 million people speaking the same language
  • The discussion about journalism vs blogging is never-ending, but only because we can’t stop talking about it
  • Blogging is hard work, really hard. Just ask Cashmore how he has built up Mashable (it concerns 4 hour nights and lots of coffee)
  • Loren Feldman thinks bikes from Amsterdam are too crappy to be true

Edial and I think have a lot to think about. And when we’re done with that, we’ll definitely share our findings with you. For now, enjoy these photos and a video of our BLOG08 band Love O.D (featuring speaker Boris Veldhuijzen van Zanten).
