On the Road Again

We're off to the IABC international conference in Washington, D.C. for the next few days. Great news: speakers have sent a lot of information that we'll post beginning this weekend.

I'm also blogging for the IABC Coffee Press Corps in the IABC Café, so this promises to be hectic. What was I thinking? IABC's blog accommodates text; we'll cross link images, screen shots from PowerPoint, hand-outs and audio here - in addition to filing content-rich briefs.

Posts will refer back and forth from one blog to another, so you may want to subscribe to both. Confused? Check out this tutorial (five-minute Macromedia Flash screencast) or this text.

Did I say audio? Yes. Fingers-crossed... we plan to bring you unscripted, person in the hallway accounts from the conference. Our test gave us the chutzpah to go for it. Don't expect the polish of the pioneering podcast, For Immediate Release --- just live, raw comments.

Warren Bickford (PDF file), the incoming chair of IABC and chief barista of IABC's blog - who has been supportive of these efforts - is on our list to interview. We'll be roaming the halls, and picking the brains, of some of the top communicators in the world - exclusively for you.
