I did it last year for the FAIR Conference, but I’m not sure what kind of interest there was. So I’m putting this up for a vote. Would you like me to liveblog the 2009 FAIR Conference here on TempleStudy.com on August 6-7, 2009? (The poll below will only show up on the website.)

- Not necessary. (0%, 0 Votes)

Any word yet on if they are going to webcast the FAIR conf like they did last year?
I think they are trying to set up an Internet stream like they did last year. Haven’t heard if they’ve been successful yet.
How about Twitter tweets?
Hi Tim. I can link my liveblog to my Twitter account, such that the liveblog entries are tweeted. The problem is that it would only publish them every 30 minutes, and only the last 5 entries (if I use Twitterfeed.com). Twitter probably isn’t the best place to publish all of the entries from a liveblog anyways, because there are hundreds. There is an RSS feed that I can generate, however. That might be a better way to follow the liveblog.

I have been informed by a representative of FAIR that the conference will be live-streamed again but this year there will be charge to view the presentations.
Hmmm…for those of us who live far away, what to do…pay for the webcast or enjoy Bryce’s liveblogging? Do both? Either way, the content looks to be exciting and enjoyable.
FAIR has just announced that they will be providing live video streaming over the internet of the conference. It is available for $20. You can sign up at the bottom of the FAIR Conference webpage:
