Jeremiah Owyang is very well known social media strategist and was recently in Doha, Qatar for ictQatar. He did a keynote presentation about blogging strategy in general and how to connect to the world.
Owyang’s presentation is insightful and informational. Without getting too political, I would like to outright say that blogging is form of expression and self thought process, it serves it purpose well only when there are no boundaries, freedom of speech.
Though it is interesting to see that countries like Qatar and U.A.E are at the forefront of innovation, it is important to point out that blogging is a step by step process. It has to start at the grass roots and then move to the next level, not the other way around.
