SMX West 2011 LogoSMX West is coming up really soon and I wanted to let you know that we will be live blogging the event. We will likely not be using the CoverItLive system this time around, instead, I am building custom live blog software to better fit within this site and work for these conferences. It should be fun and a learning experience.

Helping me with the live blog coverage is Keri Morgret of Strike Models, Brian Ussery aka beussery, Debra Mastaler of Alliance Link, Marty Weintraub of aimClear Blog and Avi Wilensky of Promedia Corp. We may add more live bloggers, but I am trying to keep it low key this time. That being said, Keri and I are covering a ton of sessions and I am sure there will be others live blogging the event, so you will be covered in case you can't make it out this this outstanding event.

Here is our coverage schedule, it may change, but we expect you to be watching and participating with us during the event - we do real live blog coverage and we hope you can ask us questions and leave comments during the sessions.
