Supernova 2005 blog

I’m pleased to announce that the Supernova 2005 weblog is now up and running. You can subscribe to the RSS feed here.

The blog is an integral part of Supernova, which is coming up June 20-22 in San Francisco. Over the next three months, I’ll split my time posting here and on the conference blog. As Supernova approaches, we’ll be adding additional features and participants to this blog, which is powered by our friends at SilkRoad. We’ll also unveil additional online community tools that enhance and extend the physical event.

Frankly, I can’t imagine doing a conference these days without a blog. Yet I still see lots of events, even those focused on emerging technologies, that want everything to be a hermetically sealed box around the conference venue. The success of Supernova, along with other “extended” events like ETech, SXSWi, and PC Forum, should be pretty convincing.
