Brainstorm Tech

This year the Fortune Brainstorm Tech Conference coincides with the Summit and many of the usual suspects are heading for Half Moon Bay. The conference is covered by many blogers with big names, among them Joi Ito, who is unsure what to blog about the conference and rather uses his camera and make photos or Steve Jurvetson of DFJ who's link goes directly to his Flicker page about his favorite topic, rockets. Rebecca McKinnon posts her answers to the questions every attendee received in advance - maybe one of the bloggers I did not check actually blogs live from the event as the agenda progresses. It seems that live blogging is so very 2007 that nobody remembers except people who set up conference Web sites a year in advance.
