symphonic blogging

| 5 Comments

I'm writing this from the balcony of the Eastman Theater here in Rochester, where in a few minutes the RPO (Rochester's symphony orchestra, for which my stepfather is a cellist) will begin playing. I like this moblogging stuff.

At intermission, we're to meet up with AKMA, his wife Margaret, who are here visiting their son, Nate. My first second blog "meetup"! (The first was Brandon Barr, who I actually met through my mother rather than his blog...)

Am looking forward to finally meeting another faculty member from "Blog U"--detils to follpw tomorrow. And now--Mozart and Rachmaninoff await. Yum.

Tried to write you care of your site and got bounced back as spam. If you have a moment, you might write me at rodcal@ix.netcom.com. I am in conversation with someone who could get this Philanthropy, Democracy, Weblogs thing to come together. I would be interested in your take on it, and what you would propose, if you had a "magic wand." Whom would you invite? How would you organize the symposium? Would civil society be the topic, broadly considered? Would nonblogger bigshots be invited? Would each pariticipant in the symposium be given a blog to play around with, if they don't have one? Would there be a main blog, like with Harvard Weblogs, to keep tabs on things? Would those who don't have weblogs use the comment section of the main blog to stay in touch? I see this as a way for those on the inside of philanthropy to engage those on the outside about civil society, democracy, and the public sphere. But any work you have done, or thoughts you have had, would be appreciated. The guy I am schmoozing has had rich and varied career and is now teaching philanthropy at Tufts, and completing a book on philanthropy and democracy, among his many many other projects.

Write me if you want to correspond about this. And, congrats, again on tenure. My wife grew up in Rochester, nice place. I am glad you and AKMA are friends. He is one of my favorite people, and a hero of mine.

> My first second blog �meetup�!

ahem...

You know what's funny about this? I don't think of you so much as a blogger that I met, but as someone I met who also blogs, if that makes sense. Perhaps because Seb "introduced" us, rather than my stumbling across your blog first. So my first sense of you was through the introduction, and through e-mail, more than through your blog.

Same thing with Brandon, really, though to a lesser extent (I was reading his blog before the outside connection came into play).

Still, my apologies...

Howabout joining Weblogger Meetup to help bring Rochester bloggers together?
