It will be nice to catchup with some old friends, such as Keren, Trevor, Steven and Mick, as well as some "online friends" such as Des (x2) and James.

This has also got to be the biggest and most well thought out conference on blogging and its effects ever put on in Australia...

"If you are working in media, public relations, marketing, publishing & journalism, internal communications, client relationship management or corporate communications, it is imperative that you gain an understanding of the impact blogs, wikis, RSS and other forms of social media will have on the way you communicate with your stakeholders."

I had better work on my presentation soon. What am I talking about again??
