I stopped blogging after this mainly because my batteries were dry and there was a scarmble for the power sockets in the room I did not wishh to participate in. During the meeting some people said they were blogging this and that there was some discussion on Friendfeed….but I can’t find anything much on either. If anybody has a few links, please give me a shout and I will happily link out.
