PICNIC07 – Cory Doctorow Q&A at the European Bloggers (Un)Conference
Thursday and Friday the European Bloggers (Un)Conference was held at the PICNIC conference and festival. Cory Doctorow attended for an hour to answer questions from the audience about Boing Boing. A lot of these questions concerned the business model and commercial side of the famous blog. Boing Boing is often mistaken for a magazine but it is a blog that is not concerned with making the most money possible. The question of what the revenue of Boing Boing is is not answered with numbers but with the statement that it makes a pretty good living for the four of them. They have a marketing company that handles the commercial side for them.
