Responses to "The Pointer"

Got some interesting responses to the last post, I thought I'd publish them here. The first one is kind of fatalistic and the second one kinda sounds like a call to arms, but they have their points. Do we need a Blogifesto? Is this hype or journalism or just someone's diary?

I know the feeling. We get into photography because we think we have a better more clever approach. When the client insists on their vision-- one you don't share--off goes the enthsiasm engine. You know your career has ended when the only reason you've taken the job is the money.

How much sunshine do you intend to blow up our ass? Instead of saying you had an idea for the story you really liked and the editor's weren't bright enough to get it, you tell us this feel good story of trying an idea and it failing. But guess what? Its all good because you all came up with a solution that was even better!!! Great news! And then you all hugged on the conference call.

Do we need more hype and exageration in this business? Isn't the point of the blogs to inject some truth into this industry? Do we need a blog manifesto? A blogifesto?

Blogfesto? Cool, let's have a party--a blogfest. We'll need someone for the spleen letting tent, the ego slide, the funny letter verification race and the comments booth.
