Please note that all live notes are taken by attendees, and are permanently editable by all blog group members. In note-taking by multiple parties during a running event mistakes of both content and attribution are highly likely. Live Notes are not a reliable source of quotable material. When possible we attempt to return to the live notes and edit them to greater accuracy, but this is not a guarantee.

These notes are a best effort. Blog your corrections and commentary.

    • We need a new name. we’re not just about blogs. Social web?
