In a recent conversation with Blog Business Summit conference organizer Steve Broback, John Battelle laid it all on the table. "You have to think like a publisher," he said. "I don't care what you produce and sell, you're now a media company."

This radical, social media-driven change in the way we do business will be the subject of Battelle's keynote at the Blog Business Summit this October.

The three day event will include a one day introductory overview of the essentials of business blogging, followed by two days of intensive exploration and discussion of businesses in the blogosphere with today's most influential bloggers. Session topics include how to monitor what the bloggers are saying about your business, how to start your own blog and ways to promote your blog for maximum exposure.

"I'm looking forward to the summit," said Battelle. "blogs are becoming more and more of a presence in corporate America, and this conference is the event businesses look to most for blogging tools and techniques.'
