Helge: Andrea Weckerle's face is familiar through Twitter and through Facebook.
Along with Jake McKee, I was one of the official conference bloggers. Being a designated blogger is a very different experience that being a regular attendee or even a speaker, and having now worked in that capacity, I have a much deeper respect for what goes into such a seemingly easy task.
Helge: Official event blogger. Hmm, I've never done it. It would be fun to be invited to some place at the dark side of the moon or the other side of the world where people live with their heads downwards.
Aside from the typical challenges of racing from one session to the next, making sure your computer battery doesn't run out of juice when there is no available plug, being flexible with program and panelist changes, and writing without the luxury of reviewing and editing what you've written, there is the responsibility of trying to record the highlights of the covered sessions in such a way that readers are able to get value from what you've posted."
Helge: No time to reflect. High speed writing. I do it sometimes. I've to struggle with the language.
