Berkman presentation on food weblogs

Business weblogging expert Bill Ives led a lively discussion of food weblogs last night at the weekly Thursday weblogging meeting hosted by Harvard's Berkman Center on the Internet and Society. Ives discussed innovative weblog marketing efforts by restaurants, such as Horsefeathers in North Conway, NH. Other food weblogs discussed include VanEats, the Radical Chef, the late Julie/Julia Project, the Tasting Menu, Chez Pim, and Cooking for Engineers. One interesting detour in the conversation covered the sociology of regional barbeque styles in the United States. The weekly Berkman meeting brings together webloggers with a wide variety of interests, from Lisa Williams' local interests to Beth Kanter's weblogs on technology and Cambodia.
