This is just a note to let readers know that tomorrow I've been invited to attend and "live-blog" from the Snelling Center for Government's day-long symposium, Fulfilling Vermont's E-state Potential: Building Community in a Connected Age. The event is being held at Champlain College and features a smattering of talks, panels and break-out sessions, the titles of which rely heavily on the words "technology" and "community."
As regular readers are no doubt aware, I'm something of a techno-optimist and I believe strongly in the power of technology to improve people's lives and to strengthen both individual rights and community cohesion. That said, I intend to wear my skeptic's hat tomorrow as I take notes and publish them.
I think I'm going to be relying heavily on Google Docs for the note-taking and copy and paste the notes into Candleblog posts periodically. This will be my first experience actually live-blogging, or at least where I'm live-blogging and people are expecting it.
The fun starts at 8:30 am so tune in tomorrow for all the e-state fun you can shake your stick at. Cathy Resmer will be live-blogging for Blurt too and I'm sure I'll be twittering throughout the day.
Bzzz. Bleep. Blorp. My e-sense is tingling.
