BlogOn and blogging on in Boston

I've been a little busy. When I get busy I usually forget that I have a readily available channel to tell people about all the cool stuff that going on. I have got to turn that around and do a little more sharing! I'll be at BlogOn . Apparently so is the rest of my known universe. Unfortunately, my friend and co-worker danah was going to be on a panel but is now hosting a germ party in her head. Strep, bronchitis, you name it - she looked like a good host body and the bugs gate crashed . We hope you feel better soon danah, but be a good host and offer the guests something to drink.

In other news, it's off to the Democratic National Convention! That's right, Jason Goldman and I are hitting the road. We're off to see the true story of thirty-four strangers, picked to live in a house (or congressional district) to find out what happens when people stop being polite and start getting real. The Real Convention! Also I hear that Puff Daddy will be having a party. Puffy, you know my email address dawg. You know there is a Blogger t-shirt in your future.

I will be blogging and taking photos as much as possible, does that make me a journalist? Would a press pass make me a journalist? Does keeping a journal with a private key and a sparkly pen make me a journalist? Does my 'I'm blogging this.' t-shirt make me a blogger? Either way, I can't wait to see the credentialled and uncredentialled bloggers alike.

I'm hoping Boston has been blanketed in a free wifi net since my last time there. Please no hogging the wifi. More info on our trip soon and please let me know if you are going to be out there, we should do coffee or I guess in Beantown - tea.
