    Monday, July 21, 2008 Kara Speaks: I'm the "annoying girl who seems to know everbody...." It was great to meet up in with Kara Swisher, co-executive editor of All Things D, the Dow Jones-owned website/conference business she heads up with Walt Mossberg. We chatted in Manhattan's Madison Park a few days ago. Kara has been been on a whirlwind, covering digital news in Los Angeles, the Valley New York and Washington. She complements her text reporting with her handy little $200 Flip video camera. She says her colleagues have their own approach to creating Web video. Her "shtick" is being "an annoying girl who seems to know everybody." Recently, Kara broke the news of the sale of paidContent to the Guardian. She told me that paidContent founder Rafat Ali is "creating the new forms of journalism." Pasted below is her interview with Rafat. Kara told me that traffic at All Things D is booming and plan are underway to expand the conference business to Europe. -- Andy Plesser, Executive Producer http://www.beet.tv/2008/07/kara-speaks-im.html
