Everyone in Philly is talking about one thing, the recent launch of Blankbaby Media.
No, that doesn't sound right... oh yeah, Live8.
Albert will be there covering it for Philly Future with press credentials and everything! Pretty awesome. I was going to apply for a press pass, but there were lots of steps involved and I just didn't feel like doing it.
Philly Future is pulling out all the stops and is trying to be the one stop shop for Live8 Philly news, there is even a special Live8 page. I may be posting on there with my thoughts on the crowds, the bands, and the general vibe (I don't think I will like any of it).
Jason Calacanis, my boss at Weblogs, Inc, is importing himself and 3 other bloggers into Philly, taking advantage of 4 press passes, to cover Live8 over at Live8Insider. I have offered up my services to Jason, and he has asked me to take pictures of the crowd, so I'll take some pictures of the expected 1 million person strong crowd. Look for them on Live8Insider at some point. It'll be fun to meet some other WINS folk though, if I actually get a chance to meet them (there will be a million freakin' people there! And the 4 WINS people will be backstage so chances are slim I'm thinking).
