SAN DIEGO — When the FiRe audience was asked to raise hands if their story was ever misreported by the media, the guy sitting next to me raised his arm, then he sort of waggled his hand as if to say “sort of.” The guy was Paul Allen.
Blogosphere elites Dave Winer and Dan Gillmor were suggesting that people can get their side of the story out directly by doing their own blogs.
I asked Paul if he’s going to do his own blog. “I want to, but some of my PR people ….,” he said, ending his sentence with a sort of shrug. Then an aide interjected that it takes a lot of time just to keep up with e-mail.
