Introducing another session: Blogging adventure: how to post from strange locations:

This is a panel discussion with Karen James, Talia Page, Anne-Marie Hodge, Vanessa Woods, Meredith Barrett, John McKay, Kevin Zelnio, Rick McPhearson and Craig McClain:

The stereotype is that bloggers write in their parents' basements, wearing pajamas, covered with Cheetos dust. But some bloggers have done amazing feats of reporting from weird and far-away places. Do you intend to do something like that? What are the technological challenges - and solutions - and what are the pros and cons of blogging from the jungle, or Antarctica, from Mt.Everest, from a submarine, from a space-ship, from a research ship, from a sailboat, from a war zone, from a high-radiation zone, an ecological research station or a palaeontological dig? Share your experiences, ask questions, and collect tips for your next trip to a Crazy Place.

Check the rest of the Program as well.
