Conference in SecondLife - Beyond Blogging!

This photo doesn't really have anything to do with the topic of this post. But I had warned Ahuva that I would work a picture of her dancing around a mushroom ring as a fairy into a blog post. She tells me that she was a "blue punk fairy". I'll take her word for it. :)

Back to the real topic of this post. Jaymin Carthage has organized a "relaxed "conference entitled "Beyond Blogging" for April 7 and 8 to take place at IBM 9. Although most of the conference presenters (and much of the audience) will be from IBM it is open to the rest of us. I know this because I am one of the presenters (blush). :)

My own portion of the agenda is scheduled for 4:00 pm SLT on April 7th. But the rest of the agenda looks really interesting. And because it's in SL you know there will be interaction with the audience. :)

I was as punky as they allowed me to be. which was my hair. :) Everyone else had sweet updos. I went for spiky punk. I know, not much of a rebel.
