I got to ETCon too late tonight to catch more than the end of the emerging democracy session, but I gatecrashed a bloggers dinner with Greg Elin, Ross Mayfield, Robert Scoble, Glenn Fleishman, Howard Rheingold, Jon Lebkowsky, Peter Kaminsky, David Isenberg,Steve Gillmor, Doc Searls and his son Allen, and some others whose names I have forgotten.
Allen & I had a good long chat about epistemology, Physics and Wolfram's ideas.
Steve and I spoke about the difference between wikis and blogs. I think the main difference is one of voice. A blog has one person's voice, but a wiki is written by committee, and ends up striving for a consensual tone.
Doc, Steve & I talked about how Rendezvous and RSS need to get together for presence-based blogging.
