I saw this from Caroline McCarthy at Cnet today and agree with this study. In the many years of research in online advertising and web 2.0 it is very clear that one of the roles a blogger plays in their area of coverage is one of newsmaker and analyst.
I did a speech at MIT in 2006 called “The Blogosphere: New Navigators.” – in this speech I predicted that certain blogger would asend to the highest trust level in communities to earn a place of trust. Why? Because to be an effective blogger you have to know about the sector your covering. To capture news, get scoops, provide content value, you need to know what you’re talking about. Bloggers provide a real time service for users. Often bloggers make mistakes, but more importantly to users they provide links to other sources that delivers on the real time alerting or redirection of attention and interest (this is what normal users are looking for). Of course bloggers self correct or get corrected from their audiences. This content cycle is two way and very effective in content development, story development, fact development, and opinion development. This makes them valuable to users. (side datapoint: the best analysts of top firms have become bloggers – why?? ..Point made)
I am shocked to see marketing people pass on sponsorship of the top influencial blogs in their sector. Yet pay 100k for an analyst firm to do some survey. Blog advertising and sponsorship is the best game in town for marketing executives. Here I posted about the Future of Blogging last week.
Of course I’m biased but do see direct results everyday. Tell me if you agree?
Tags: AP, bloggers, blogging, Copyright
Associated Press is trying to set guidelines on how bloggers can leverage their content (that they post freely to the world). Translation: AP is trying to use it’s decaying muscle to kill the bloggers.
The Associated Press, one of the nation’s largest news organizations, said that it will, for the first time, attempt to define clear standards as to how much of its articles and broadcasts bloggers and Web sites can excerpt without infringing on The A.P.’s copyright.
Mike Arrington has declared a boycott on his blog. AP doesn’t get it. Bloggers are now part of the news ecosystem and they (AP) need to deal with it. I would rather see the AP integrate the blogging paradigm into their business. They won’t. Why they don’t have any vision.
NyTimes for example has embraced the blogosphere. Hell even John Markoff blogs now. I’ve seen considerable traffic from the NYTimes site on my opinion stories. That’s a good thing. Two years ago I never would have had the exposure to the valuable NY Times audience. Benefit to NYTimes: I will share my audience with them and other bloggers are doing that as well.
The Associated Press? As my Dad would say “What a bunch of knuckleheads”. Wake up and smell the coffee. The bloggers are distribution for them not enemies. Also since when is the AP in the business of setting standards and adjudicating content.
Read the quote from the Kennedy who is in charge of strategy for the AP…“Cutting and pasting a lot of content into a blog is not what we want to see,” he said. “It is more consistent with the spirit of the Internet to link to content so people can read the whole thing in context.”
Note to Mr Kennedy: The blogosphere doesn’t just share they steal content; sharing=stealing; Why? Users expect it. Get used to it and embrace it.
Update 2: Simon Owens of Bloggasm has more information on the head butting Roger Cadenhead has had with the AP. Simon writes: The DMCA takedown requests Rogers Cadenhead found waiting for him in his inbox on June 10 were not the first he had received. They weren’t even the first sent to him by the Associated Press. This didn’t make Cadenhead, publisher of the Drudge Retort, any less shocked when he found out their targets.
