BlogOn techie backchannel flap aftermath

· Blogosphere

One of the people I met during BlogOn whose blogging I admire is Sean Bonner, but I do remember being puzzled when posted to the irc backchannel something about how “the cameraman is an ass.” I posted “Hey, that’s Scot Hacker. He’s a friend of mine and he’s a great guy.” The reply was something like “Tell your friend to get over himself.”
I never really understood what that was all about until I read Scot’s blog entry this morning: birdhouse.org: My Mega Power Trip.
I really enjoyed talking to Sean face to face and I’m friends with Scot, so in a way this is just embarassing for me.
As an observer, though, it’s interesting to see this play out on weblogs
