Preparing for ASTD TechKnowledge

I saw a post by Bill Ives - Conference Blogs on the Rise:
Individuals have blogged about conferences for some time. It seems now that more conference events are sponsoring these blogs and trying to aggregate those blogging the conference. It is a way to start the event on a virtual basis prior to the start and then continue the conversations afterwards and provide an archive for what happen and what people thought about it.
It made me think back to an earlier post Be an Insanely Great Professional Conference Attendee. The biggest idea in that post is to come prepare with interesting questions to ask other attendees that would spark conversations. And, Bill's post made me realize that likely there were people talking about the conference in blogs prior to the conference. So, quick search found the following:
Pretty small list. It appears that relatively few bloggers will be presenting at ASTD TechKnowledge in Las Vegas as compared to the eLearningGuild's Annual Conference in Boston. Still, it does give some food for thought by surfing around the blogs of these folks.
