The Summit on Blogging and Democracy in the Commonwealth
Besides that, it was a good time. I had the pleasure of seeing John Behan again; he has been both one of my favoite bloggers and one of my biggest sources of support. I also got to meet Steve Minor and Shaun Kenney, both of whom were very intelligent and friendly. I even enjoyed meeting some of the liberal bloggers. As much as I disagree with him, Waldo Jaquith is a very agreeable guy and an undeniable leader. On a small side note, early (or is it late?) congratulations for your upcoming wedding Waldo; I intended to say so yesterday, but that thought got lost among the other conversations. I also got the opportunity to meet fellow current Wahoo bloggers Mike Slaven, Cari, and Jane, although mutual friendElliot was unable to attend. It was good getting the opportunity to talk to them all. And for anyone who is a little curious, Cari has a humorous take on my anonymity (and I do appreciate that she is maintaining it).
Bloggers commenting on the Summit (as more comment, I will update this post):
Jim Bacon (and again here)
Chad Dotson, formerly of the pseudonym John Behan
UPDATE 8 PM: For whatever reason, I missed that "the artist formerly known as John Behan" decided to go by his real name, Chad Dotson (scratch that; as I read now, I see that the change has happened today, as he notes here). I've known for about four months, but I respected his wishes to remain anonymous, as I am glad that many including Chad have done for me. I'm not sure when he did this, but this post has been changed to Chad's real name. Now, how to avoid slipping back into calling him "John Behan" in future posts? Oh well, I suspect he will not take too much offense to such a mistake.
Also, thanks to Chad (well, I remembered here at least) for the link.
