In the video of Brooklyn photobloggers, still some Atlantic Yards echoes

I missed the sixth annual Brooklyn Blogfest Thursday night, but the few reports I've seen suggest it was a congenial and less fraught scene than last year's Absolut kerfuffle. The keynote speaker was blog maven Jeff Jarvis. (Here's a report from the Brooklyn Eagle.)

Brit in Brooklyn photoblogger Adrian Kinloch has posted his video tribute to Brooklyn photobloggers, shown at the event.

At :54, Tracy Collins captured Markowitz last October looking skeptically at some information proffered by yours truly regarding his putative trip to China to pitch Atlantic Yards to green card-seeking investors:
