Are we seeing a new wave of hosts for events coming out of the blogosphere when in the past they came usually from the media and analyst community?
I think we are. Let's not discount the fact Om Malik hosts his own Structure 08 and Michael Arrington and Jason Calcanis host the Tech Crunch 50, but those are what we call "house events" as they are putting on their own events so they get to be stars of their own productions. But in the case of Alec, just like with Ken and I, we're invited to host the events, which is a big differentiator. In the case of Ken and me, we host the annual CommNexus Gadget Fest in San Diego.
