WELL, EVERYTHING'S READY for the launch of Pajamas Media
, actually under its new and final name that I can announce now: OSM
The launch event, at the Rainbow Room in New York's Rockefeller Center, will start at 10 am EST (4 pm Central European Time), with live comments by Instapundit blogger Glenn Reynolds
and Pulitzer Prize winner Judith Miller
, which will follow a live debate between David Corn
of The Nation, Larry Kudlow
of CNBC's "Kudlow & Company", John Podhoretz
of The New York Post and Claudia Rosett
, formerly of The Wall Street Journal, and a special audiocast appearance by noted Baghdad blogging brothers Mohammed and Omar Iraq the Model
Style maven Tom Julian and Manolo the Shoeblogger will also lead a panel discussion on the topic "Are Blogs the New Black?"
I'll also be there, in a video appearance; some circumstances have kept me in Barcelona during this eventful day. But well, I will follow everything (and you too, if you want) via the live audio feed, available both in Windows Media
and Real Media
formats. So, tune in, it's gonna be fun!
UPDATE. It's going great! now there's a brief pause so I thought I'd let you know in case you're interested that Ed Driscoll is liveblogging
every detail of the event. In fact, he's not the only one; virtually everyone has a laptop in front of them. So much that only two minutes after my video was shown, I got several emails and IMs by people there! On the picture front, GayPatriot has a couple of them
UPDATE II. More pictures over at Solomonia
UPDATE III. That's it for now; after Judith Miller (with Glenn) and Senator Cornyn (from Washington) have spoken, in both cases generating a lively discussion. In a while, everybody to the party at the W hotel. No, no audio feed from there...
