Tips for conference bloggers

Conference reports are a great way to help share knowledge and justify
the expense of conference travel, but attendees are often so busy
learning and networking that they don’t have the time to send detailed
conference reports from the road. Postponing the report-writing to the
plane trip back could mean many lost insights and lost momentum.

Liveblogging can help. With a little preparation, conference
reports can be posted and shared with coworkers and the rest of the
world within ten minutes of the presentation. Ethan Zuckerman and Bruno
Giussani have put together a collection of terrific tips for conference bloggers, which you should read before you head out to your next conference.

    Hey! Thanks for the great tip! Just came across it from PTS when I posted my not-so-liveblog post about my trip to OSDC a couple of weeks ago (sheesh.) Need to practice this liveblogging soon.

    Maybe next year, at OS Summit, or at DebConf. :D
