Last week while I was at BlogOn2005 in NYC, I had the great privilege to sit around a table with three of the world’s most admired and read bloggers:

> Mena Trott, president and co-founder of Six Apart, the company behind Typepad and Moveable Type.

> Jackie Huba, who, with her partner Ben McConnell, wrote a terrific book “Creating Customer Evangelists” and runs the Church Of The Customer blog.

> Steve Rubel, Vice President, Client Services at CooperKatz and Company, a mid-size PR firm in midtown New York City, and the guy behind the well-read Micro Persuasion weblog.

We started the chat by following on from the panel that Steve moderated where he asked the question “what does ‘markets are conversations’ really mean?” and then got into a general discussion about the current state of blogging.

Listen closely for the moment when Steve made us all go misty eyed. It was a beautiful moment and not one that I want to trivialize at all, because it’s actually quite a powerful idea.
