Five Star Friday: Edition #16

I am back from the BlogHer '08 conference in San Francisco, and I am convinced now more than ever that social media and, in particular, weblogs are a powerful cultural force with which to be reckoned. I took part in the BlogHer Community Keynote on the first night of the conference and was humbled by the twenty-one other people with whom I took the stage. There are so many excellent writers out there who freely share of their experiences and talents with the world, and it is a gift that I will not look in the mouth.

Thank you all for spreading the word.
