When Phil at Phnomenon opted into the “interview me” meme I sent him some questions. On Wednesday I met Phil at Bar Lourinha (37 Little Collins St) for lunch and probably should have whipped out my MP3 recorder and interviewed there and then. We talked about all sorts of stuff, the problems facing Cambodia, the food there and the emergence of the new Khymer cuisine and how blogging has led both of us to find ourselves writing about food for the dead tree media, his first big story being for The Wall Street Journal. You can see his responses here.
Later it was on to the funky digital media space Horse Bazaar (397 Little Lonsdale St) to meet some of Melbourne’s top bloggers, including the legendary five figure blogger Darren Rowse who organised the night and published a round-up here.
I didn’t meat any food bloggers but I did chat to James, Fairfax’s online community editor, Ren and Tania from Fashioning, Kirrily from Geek Etiquette, Alastair Cameron from his eponymously named blog, Martin from Small Office Australia, Karen from Miscellaneous Adventures of an Aussie Mum, Geoff at Pseudofish and John (Craig’s tech) among others.
