Good God! That would be so cool! Were you really just "lucky" or did they look at the content of your blog and see what work you've been doing before picking you?

Dave

Congrats! I can't wait to see your coverage.

Albert

We're all lucky! I'd like to think that the powers that be loved my photos so much that they'd bring me on as the official photographer of Live 8 and the G8 summit and pay me oodles of dough, but no, I don't think so.

JLo

I'll be posing, live...

Heh heh... congrats on getting in. They made a good choice, especially given the quality of your photography.

Hey Albert, I promoted this post over at Philly Future -- congrats and best of luck!

Sarcasmo

Congrats! That's awesome! I can't wait to see your coverage!

hey! so nice to meet you! thanks for the shout out.

i linked to your post & site from my lil' corner of the net.

it will indeed be an amazing experience. i'm looking forward to just soaking it all up and hoping to see some great shows. the best thing is that i remember the original live aid - it was so awesome. and i hope that this time the efforts to combat global poverty don't just fade from the american consciousness.

Take a look at NowPublic when you want to put your pics up. They're an open source media site.

Congrats Albert you deserve the recognition! It will be great to follow the event through your reporting.

Thank you everyone for the kind words!

Anna, it's gonna be a fantastic ride we're about to get on.

rzklkng, I'm well aware of NowPublic; I've been posting there for a little while now [http://www.nowpublic.com/user/1351]. I'll be sure to post images up there as well for everyone to use. But I'll primarily be using Flickr, I feel it's a little easier to use.

Rep. Mark B. Cohen

Live 8 is wise to have coverage by bloggers, and fortunate that someone with your writing and photographic skills will be one of them.

Congratulations on being one of those breaking down barriers for bloggers, and for having a record deserving of this kind of recognition.

Give my best wishes to Matt Stoller of The Blogging of the President: it looks like I will be stuck in Harrisburg helping to wrap up this year's budget deliberations.

Becky

Congrats, Albert. Looking forward to your photos and coverage...
