PubCon Vegas 2009 is next week and like we have done for the past five years, we are live blogging this event. You can see our past coverage at the 2008, 2007, 2006, 2005 and 2004 live blogging of PubCon, WebmasterWorld's conference.
This year, we will be live blogging the event in real time, using the live blogging tool, CoverItLive.com. We have used this tool for the past few conferences and we enjoy it, so we are sticking with it.
For this show, we have several live bloggers volunteering their time to bring to you the conference. The live bloggers include Avi Wilensky & Sheara Goldenthal from Promediacorp, Brian Ussery aka Beussery, Marty Weintraub from aimClear and Carolyn Shelby aka Cshel. Oh, I will also be doing the live blogging.
