WSJ Confabs in CA

My emotionally distant sister reports on this week’s Wall Street Journal-hosted conference in Carlsbad, ‘D: All Things Digital.’ Lots of talk about newspapers, blogs, content, etc. Bill Gates starring in a parody video! Ana Marie Cox talking about herself! (“Ms. Cox called herself the person in the center of a happy media orgy.”) In case you couldn’t make it to Carlsbad, you can read about it here at WSJ.com in the ‘D: Notebook’ online feature. (I really wish they had called it ‘Da Notebook.’)
