Toby Jenkins delivered this presentation to the Inaugural Media Regulation Forum in Sydney.

In it Toby discusses 3 sections:

Firstly:
- Who qualifies?
- What impact will it have?

Secondly: The 2 driving principles behind why blogs won't be silenced:
1. The incredible availability of the tools necessary to create, edit and publish content (reference Chris Anderson's The Long Tail)
2. The process of self actualisation that blogging facilitates.

Finally: Toby also discusses examples of blogs: Mumbrella, Banana Watch, Timothy Ferriss, Eden Riley, Problogger, Bluewire Media, Chris Brogan, Hugh Jackman Jim Stewart
