the independent publisher

ONLINE MEDIA- Blogs, webzines and the money question At the core of
much of the great innovation on the Web in recent years is the
independent publisher: the blogger meticulously tagging her content
and tweaking her RSS code into the wee hours of the night, or the
photo junkie figuring out new ways to post and share his shots of
street art across the country in real-time. And independent publishing
online is only growing. According to a Pew Internet study, a new
weblog is created every 7.4 seconds, yielding an average of 12,000
blogs per day. But what about webzines? This weekend in San Francisco,
many webzine and online publishing innovators will meet at Webzine

2005 -- "a real world, face-to-face celebration of independent
publishing on the Internet." The conference is relaunching after a
four-year hiatus and will feature panels on such topics as "Levelling
the Playing Field: Journalism Online" and "Podcasting: The
Democratization of Broadcast?" We spoke to conference organizer Eddie
Codel about blogs versus webzines, the "vlogosphere", and making -- or
not making -- money off independent publishing.
