Looking back

There is now some time gone after the 2 days of BlogTalk. To review it briefly: it was great thanks to the speakers and thanks to the audience. We were some 130 from all over the world. Briefly after the conference a discussion emerged about a possible BlogTalk 3.0 and more general about the format of the conference. I replied to that on randgaenge.net. Opening BlogTalk

This the view from the panel just before I opened the conference.

For those of you that are interested in what the press had to say, please click and check out the press-corner.

There are pictures available, of course, too many to get hold of. Google it and see the mix of BlogTalk 1.0 and BlogTalk 2.0.

Well, the first day went very well. We had lots of fascinating talks and discussions in- and outside of the conference location. Our obsession took us even to a restaurant somewhere in the 7th district of Vienna to engage in further discussion about the topic. It had to end, of course. Yesterdays live stream had a peak of 1300 users that was too much at some point but a success on the other side ;-) Now, I'm looking forward to today as more interesting contributions are to come. Finally the update of the program: the Deutsche Welle World will announce their international Weblog Award BOB (=Best of Blogs) tomorrow afternoon. Please check the program for further details.
