United We Blog!


Διαβάζω εδώ για το Συνέδριο ΛΟΑΔ Μπλόγκερς που έγινε στην Ουάσιγκτον και αντιγράφω:

The LGBT Blogger and Citizen Journalist Initiative recently took place in Washington D.C.

"Bloggers listened intently as their more veteran peers instructed them in the art of "blog swarms," "astro-turfing" and "cross-posting.

Bloggers, said one, can enable a minor event to "take on a whole new life" in the mainstream media by spreading news about it across 10 or 15 different blogs (the "blog swarm"). Lone bloggers can acquire the clout of large groups by assuming a moniker that makes them appear to be a "national" entity when, in fact, they are "a fake grassroots organization" ("astro-turfing"). And bloggers can increase readership for their views by posting them not just on their own sites but on other, more widely read, sites ("cross-posting").

Blogs, said Mike Rogers, organizer of the summit, can be used to "drag people out of the closet" and persuade a corporation that has donated to an anti-gay cause to make amends to the LGBT community"

Ναι αλλά δεν αρκεί μόνο το bloging. Σύμφωνα με το άρθρο, χρειάζεται συνέχεια: "Sending an email, calling, signing a petition, writing to your elected representative make a huge difference."

εμ φυσικά, χρειάζεται δουλειά και δυστυχώς εδώ στην ελλάδα είμαστε φυγόπονοι, αρκούμαστε στην (χρήσιμη κατά τ' άλλα) κριτική.
