The Moose, It’s Been Fully Loosed

Regular readers are no doubt a bored of hearing about this bloody blogging conference. Take heart–this will probably be the last post on the subject for a while.

Regardless, we had the conference on Saturday down at UBC Robson Square and it appears to have been successful. All the speakers arrived, and spoke eloquently, all the attendees seemed to have a good time and, you know, nobody poked their eye out. The twin pain points of laptop-intensive conferences–power and wifi, didn’t cause much pain. Despite the vast sea of portable computers, UBC’s wireless Internet held up.

People really seemed to enjoy the diversity of the attendees (from hardcore blogging geeks to regular, human newbies) and the sessions (people spoke very highly, for example, of Julie Leung’s talk on blogging and the family–I’m sorry I missed it). The organizers are meeting for a post-operative lunch to figure out what we did right and wrong.

The nice thing about running a blogging conference compared to, say, a knitting conference, is that you get immediate, honest, trackable feedback about your event. If people didn’t like something, you’ll hear about it online. Here are links to some aggregated content:

    I think everyone had a great time. It was nice to be able to match up real life faces with their online personalities. I even had a few surprises, running into people I knew who I didn’t know blogged.
    I think we can expect a renewed flurry of local bloggers in the next few weeks.
    Looking forward to the next one!
