There’s always something left out
Anytime anyone tries to do a definitive list of whose the best, most important, or drunkest, bloggers in Vancouver it always falls short. It’s the nature of the beast, if you mention x number of people person x+1 will feel left out, and if you mention everyone then really you’re just doing a roll call.
It’s a trap that I tried to avoid when writing an article on the Vancouver blog scene in this week’s Georgia Straight [tgs]. I’m glad to have gotten a few people who don’t really get the coverage they deserve, at least not locally, involved in the article. It’s worth a read, though since I wrote it I may be heavily biased.
Those who do read it might notice that I left out any mention of Metroblogging Vancouver. I might have mentioned it briefly in relation to Beyond Robson [br], who’s Sean Orr I interviewed, but it took up quite a bit of words explaining what it was, what my role in it was and how it related to Beyond Robson and other Vancouver group blogs.
So if you were left out of the article and feel aggrieved, well so was I so suck it up.
Once again I’d like to thank everyone who agreed to be interviewed for the article.
