Lee LeFever

Hi Neville,
I agree that blogs and RSS are a key for any high tech conference. Something that I thought was interesting about the Blog Business Summit was that many of us agreed to use the same Tags for the event. This was a way for us to bind our posts, pictures and Del.icio.us tags together for reference. Their were actually two: BBS05 and BlogBusinessSummit.

I wonder if this is something that conference organizers should promote- a specific tag for an event. It takes away from the emergent quality a bit, but it may help.

Neville Hobson

That's a great, idea, Lee. Adds to the ease of tracking and finding the information. So if you have a blog that Technorati will tag automatically by its categories (TypePad, for instance), you just create the category for the posts. Couldn't be simpler.

I'd also say that all of this applies to any conference, not only high tech ones. The easier it is to do, the more likely this will be one other factor that will help extend this new way of creating, sharing and reporting information into the broader business world.

Lee LeFever

Yeah, it's the high tech ones for now, but more to follow I'm sure.

I've been using the technorati tags, but I do it via a handy bookmarket. If you drag the link from the page linked below onto your browser, it makes technorati tags really easy...


Neville Hobson

Thanks, Lee. Neat!

BloggingDEMO.com came about because Jason and I both ended up going to DEMO and we cooked up a way to blog the event live. What DEMO *did* do was extend press credentials to a large number of bloggers. What Chris Shipley and the DEMO staff did *not* do was discourage any of us from blogging the event (and in fact gave us a shout out or two during the event). We sat right up front, filmed, photographed, and wrote about the entire event in real time. In addition to me and Jason doing BloggingDEMO, Scoble, Buzz, Cameron Reilly, and a host of other bloggers were typing away madly.

Next year, I guarantee you there will be even better provisions made for bloggers. And you're right - every event organizer has a lesson to learn here.
