The Australian Blogging Conference
When: Friday 28th September, 2007
Where: Brisbane - QUT
"This unconference, modelled on the successful BloggerCons in the United States, aims to redress this by providing a forum that will allow Australian bloggers to gather together and talk about blogging and the Australian blogosphere. It aims to be a user-focused conference for the Australian blogging community.
This will not be a conference in the traditional sense. It will be relatively informal. Instead of lengthy presentations, people will be invited lead discussions on various topics throughout the day – some practical, such as how to build a better blog, and some theoretical on the role, influence and future of blogs."
That means no academic papers (no DEST points) - just straightforward, informal discussion and networking - a great model for inspiration and sharing ideas.
There's a growing list of participants on the blog - and an expanding conversation happening over at Facebook too!
I wonder if they're going to record or stream any of the sessions.... that might encourage some participation for those unable to travel to Brissie...?
