Allen Stern, who lately has been blogging hard and is climbing to the top of the tech blogosphere, breaks the story about former editor of blognation Tris Hussey joining Jeremey Wright at b5media. Congrats to Tris who rebounded in no time.
Last month I broke the story on twitter about the blognation implosion. It is no secret that I am evaluating the opportunity to rollup Blognation. I liked their big vision but didn’t like their tactical execution. I believe that having country editors and scalable infrastructure to support it makes the concept a billion dollar opportunity. They didn’t architect the venture the right way – plain and simple.
Blognation may not see another day but the concept will live and the existing editors should have jobs very quickly. It will be interesting to see how the blogosphere evolves post Sethi-Arrington war and the resulting blognation implosion.
The blogosphere has been experiencing ‘civil war’ lately. In my opinion this is ‘growing pains’ due to a huge surge of growth coming. I believe that the blogosphere is about to break out and grow exponentially in the next 24 months. International is the big growth area. The world is flat. That’s where it’s heading then I wonder what the A-list will look like?
When I talk about the blogosphere I’m not talking about just content bloggers but I’m talking about infrastructure. Blogging networks are infrastructure based not content based.
