I checked the Blogebrity list and found that there are no A-list bloggers from Montreal.
Big deal. That whole A-List thing is a bunch of crap anyway. Wil Wheaton? Please!
Last Friday I spend half the day at the National Film Board, as part of a group of people presenting to the producers and staff of some of their online efforts. The topic was about the Web and its culture. I presented briefly on the topic of "The Web as a Tool for Communicating, Sharing and Belonging to Communities."
Instead of a PowerPoint Presentation I displayed a Web page full of links to some of the things I was talking about. I made it a point to not link to A-listers. Instead, I linked to (and discussed) some non-A-list blogs that I thought were good illustrations of some of the points I was trying to make.
You might find your blog on the list. Please don’t feel slighted if you don’t. (You’re all A-List to me!) I had only a couple of evenings to slap it together, so it’s pretty basic looking and the content is far from exhaustive.
My reason for not linking to A-listers was simply to make the point that "A-list" and "interesting" do not necessarily correlate. I also reasoned that the darn A-listers are always marched out whenever there’s an "Intro to Blogs" dog-and-pony show, so I wanted people to see something different.
