Slovenia: Blogres

Blogres, the first official gathering of Slovenia bloggers, will take place Saturday, June 9, in Ljubljana, Michael M of The Glory of Carniola reports. His own presentation will, hopefully, follow this outline: “My first point will be to attack the foreign press like a runaway elephant for its generally sloppy and clichéd reporting on Slovenia. I will then use many curse words and will give many depressing examples (many never seen here) of how unprofessional many professional journalists really are. I will then suggest that blogs (with the notable exception of this one) are stepping into the gaping void left behind by the rampant closing of foreign bureaus. I will try to convince you that they have the potential of providing a truer image of the country.”
