Last post from Blog|Philadelphia

Heather's final post:

Blog|Philadelphia, the unconference, is over. I had a very interesting experience over the last two days. I'm glad I went. I'm also thankful for the wireless access so I would multitask.

Though there was mention of vlogs <outbind://11/> , or video blogs, I was wondering why there was not more discussion of other forms of social media. Also, what about outside the world of Philadelphia?! I have a friend in Belgium writing his Ph.D. around interactive TV <> . The BBC <> is doing a lot with this viewer experience. And what about new technologies? Yes, there's the glorious iPhone, but what did the unconference SME's know about other technologies on the horizon? Gee golly, what about the Microsoft Surface <> ? That's definitely the coolest thing I've seen since ... hum, maybe one of the coolest things I've ever seen.

It's great that an interested, local community came together. I learned there is a very active [professional] blogging community in Philadelphia. And my Twitter <> friends expanded from my new connections. I've learned not to be intimidated by blogging and perhaps to even check out group blogging in the future. Sounds like it could be fun.

As a first time blogger, I did get interviewed for Ziddio <> netTv for my first time blog experience. That was neat. Thanks to you Jonathan. Who know's how long I would have waited for my this first blog opportunity otherwise!
