Nick and I went to Interesting 2008 recently.
The Interesting conferences basically consist of 300 bloggers and blog-followers listening to a day of talks about anything. The best bit is that the speakers are limited to 3 or 5 minutes, sometimes 10 or 15, so you get to see a huge number of really interesting people talking about (mostly) really interesting stuff.
Blogging is supposed to be an up-to-the-minute, cutting edge, what's-on-now kind of activity - some people at the meeting were actually blogging DURING the talks - so I'm a bit embarrassed again to be blogging this a bit late. 2 months and 4 days to be exact...
