Techdirt In The Interview Hotseat
from the Q&A dept
It’s apparently interview season, as two separate interviews that were done with me about Techdirt were just published. The first was conducted by Glyn Moody and appears in today’s Guardian over in the UK. It covers a variety of things, from the Techdirt Insight Community, to this blog, to the economics I tend to write about. It was a fun interview and it’s almost too bad that the limits of newsprint (and time) meant we couldn’t go into more depth on some of the subjects.
The second interview was by Michael Banks, for his new book called Blogging Heroes. Banks went out and interviewed a bunch of bloggers to try to find out the history of their blogs, what makes them blog and what advice they have for other bloggers. The publisher is conducting a little marketing experiment as well, where they send each of the bloggers who was interviewed a copy of their own interview to post on their blogs. So you’re starting to see a few different chapters available. It’s yet another experiment in understanding how free content makes good sense, so I can’t resist posting my interview here:

Congrats on the nice coverage. What a long strange trip it’s been.
well done, mike
you interview like a pro (well, you are, so that makes sense)
great work…been a fan of techdirt for years so it makes me happy to see you in the news
And not the website either.
Woot as in awesome for you.
I am glad to have stumbled upon this almost 2 years ago.
Love the site and keep up the good work, it is appreciated!
Very well done.
Good insight on tech dirt and blogging. I didn’t know you cared so much about us readers 😉
best part is;
This means you aren’t preaching to the choir. People who don’t come here are getting the word.
First off, I’d like to congratulate you on the interviews. that seems pretty cool to me. Second, I’d like to thank you for keeping the site fresh with new topics everyday, I have learned a lot and love the interaction.
I’m really glad my coworkers told me about this site last year. Instead of stumbling randomly around the net for things to do at work when I get those precious few free moments. Keep up the good work.
Congrats on the chapter. I love techdirt, I read it daily, actually a few times a day. So, thanks for being the first place I turn to for tech analysis.
Interesting chapter. But it didn’t tell us which one of the Heroes blogs – my guess is the cheerleader.
BTW, I’m sure my own blog must have been #31 on the list:)

The book looks great and the interview was very interesting – as you usually are.
congrats on the attention.
Thank you for posting your chapter, Mike. It’s good to see the reactions. Your interview is one of the more interesting–particularly because you have such a long-term perspective–and I hope that many, many readers discover Techdirt!
