OK, so I didn’t do any liveblogging. While many others did (and many more via Twitter), I had spent all too much time staring at and typing on my MacBook over the previous week, after too many late nights writing my presentation, and it was nice just to sit, listen, and jot a few notes down in my notebook (i.e., with pen, on paper). In between and afterwards (including a multiple venue, four-hour, last-day-of-the-conference chat among about ten of us on Sunday), we processed what was going on.
Lazy Sunday at au bon pain (w/apologies to Henry, Ivan, Jason, Lana, and others who evaded the apparatus) –
Mike Newman, Derek Johnson, Jonathan Gray, and the jovial Joshua Green
Ben Aslinger digs his camera, and Josh Jackson agrees: it’s pretty sweet.
It’s Martyn Pedler (and not the guy from Placebo)
Mike’s got some nice pics up at Flickr, even if I do say so myself.
I’m divvying thoughts into a few posts, one per panel that I attended, plus some general reflections after that.
You should also check out some of the many responses to the weekend from folks like Jill, Jason, Mike, Snurb, Jean, Tarleton, and Chuck, with I’m sure more to come. Henry Jenkin’s post-conference thread is up as well, calling for comments. In addition, the official conference site will continue to be updated, with full papers and podcasts of the plenary sessions.
