More SXSW: Jory Des Jardins, one of the organizers of BlogHer, gave a two-minute(+) talk on the theme "What's the Secret?" and Erik Hansen was there to catch her on video. I think you'll enjoy listening to her comments. One caution: It was taken with a video camera by someone in the audience, so it's not the highest quality, but other than a couple of garbled sentences, amazingly good under the circumstances. Here's the link. Or the long route to the video through Jory's blog. (And the transcript is there, if you want to read the parts you miss on the video.)
Before blogging became all the rage, Tom was posting book reviews and Observations (essentially early blog posts) to this site. You can find the archives below.
