I am sitting in Ames Courtroom in Austin Hall on the campus of Harvard Law School, listening to Paul Caron provide the introduction to the Bloggership Conference. If you want to listen in, click here.
For the first time in a long time, I decided not to prepare any PowerPoint slides for my presentation, which is based on my modest contribution to the conference (here). Too bad, because this room has a huge screen!
Ann is next to me, blogging about Randy Barnett, who is next to her reading blogs on his Treo.
There are lots of extra seats in this room. Makes me wonder whether anyone is listening on the internet ...

"Blogs are power to the people." After listening to Paul Butler's comment, I'm ready to go protest or something. What a great public speaker he is, on-line and off.

I'm not planning to listen in over the internet -- still writing exams! -- but I'm looking forward to reading your observations about the conference.

Gordon, I am listening while sitting in my home office, waiting for the Salvation Army truck to show up and doing address changes for our impending move. Also passing notes via e-mail to one of the participants. What a world!
It sounds like every person in the audience has a computer going. I hope none of them have banned computers from their classrooms (see Kate Litvak's comment).

I agree, Vic. Paul is a great speaker.
Hi Tonya. I finished writing my exam at 2 am today in my hotel room! The students get to dig in on Monday.
Hey, Jeff. Being here is strange. I couldn't wait to sit down so that I could read Ann's post and find out what I had said.

Jeff- there is a move afoot at HLS to ban wireless, at least, from classrooms. On the more enlightened side, at least one prof at HLS bans laptops in favor of collaborative wiki-based note-taking by designated notetakers who are allowed to bring their laptops to the lecture for which they are note-taker.
