Just curious as to if any Channel 9'ers will be attending BloggerCon next weekend in Boston? I will be there, maybe we can do a get together dinner? See ya there if you are.
I'm signed up, not sure if I'm going, the Yankees will be at Fenway!
i have never heard of this "bloggercon"..has anybody gone before...what is it like?!
I would surmise that it is a convention... possibly, but not guarenteed to be, centered around people that blog and/or the software involved in said 'blogging'.
BloggerCon is a conference about weblogs on April 17 (this saturday) on the campus of Harvard Law School. The sessions are in Pound Hall.
From the BloggerCon Website:
< .. Snip ..>
The focus of BloggerCon is weblogs in journalism, education, science, business and politics. We are interested in people's experiences with weblogs, now that they've been in use for five or six years, depending on who you ask. This is not a technical visionary
venue, nor is it a place for political activism. Our interest is in the use of weblogs. Of course technology and politics are related to the use of weblogs.
Cost: BloggerCon II is free for everyone. $0.

Dave will discuss Weblogs, RSS, aggregators, OPML, content management, how we can work together, and the care and feeding of online communities.
Biography: Dave Winer is currently a Berkman Fellow at the Harvard Law School. He writes http://www.scripting.com, an influential tech industry weblog. He is the co-author of the SOAP spec and president of UserLand Software http://www.userland.com. UserLand
makes Frontier, a powerful scripting and database environment for the Mac OS and Windows. In late 1994, Winer started DaveNet, a popular commentary channel, distributed via electronic mail and thru the worldwide web. A software industry veteran, Winer also
produced award-winning commercial software hits at Living Videotext, including ThinkTank, Ready and MORE. Living Videotext merged with Symantec in 1987. In 1997 he was chosen as a Seybold Fellow for his pioneering work in web-based publishing systems
I watched David Winer’s video, says he believes in “competition” but all comments on his blog are "flames".
We have a bit of a crisis on our hands re the webcast for the conference. We have a full
RealServer license that expired yesterday (praise Murphy) and now we're 1. Trying to get Real to re-up (it was a contribution, Berkman is a non-profit) or 2. Find someone with a RealServer
who can reflect for us. If you can help, please post a note here.
Our system managers say that setting the clock back is not an option.
Kevin, it's up to Jay McCarthy to figure out what to do. Please help any way you can. Thanks.

Dave, why don’t you at least take responsibility for the laps in server license instead of referring to a factious Irishman?
Only this past week we learned that GWBush got a warning briefing 8/9/01; “Ben Laden Determined to Attack Inside the United States” yet he refuses to accept ANY responsibility for what happened on 9/11/01 George Tenet, the director of central “intelligence”
also received a warning briefing in 8/01;“Islamic Extremist Learns to Fly”, but he could not remember so is “not” responsible. I wish we could set the clock back to 8/01, but that is not an option. So please Dave, take responsibility and pay for another year
of RealServer, or you could install Windows Server 2003...
