Inside Higher Ed’s Scott Jaschik sat in on the blogger get-together at the MLA conference last week and quoted a number of Wordherders in his article Bloggers in the Flesh. Wordherder quotes came from Matt K., dave(e), Chuck, and Zombie; bloggers Nick Montfort (of GTA fame) and Miriam E. Burstein (of The Little Professor) apparently made up the rest of the group gathering.

I’m curious who refered to who as his “blogparent.”

It’s also a shame that Scott decided to edit out all the references herders must have made about their Wordherder community. *wink elbow wink*

    We *did* mention the Wordherders several times, but *alas* Scott chose to focus on other topics.

    I am the blogfather.

    Some day, and that day may never come, I will call upon you to do a service for me.

    Sounds like you all had a good time in Philly 🙂 Chuck – I hope the interviews went well!

    The blogfather. Ha.

    I have this weird cross-image of Brandow in a Darth Vadar suit. Creepy, really.

    I’m the one who said that I considered Matt K and Liz L as my blogparents, by which I meant that my blogging style is inspired by both. Whether any influence is visible…that’s for others to say. 🙂
