Notes from last night’s party 

I had a wonderful time tonight. Met so many wonderful people, most of them women. Lot’s of bonding. No bad vibes, not even a teeny bit. I loved all the attention.

Maryam Scoble: “There are rooms full of beautiful, smart and smiling women here at Blogher.”

It’s so true Maryam. For example, when I had trouble getting online yesterday, it was Zadi Diaz who helped me figure out what was wrong. Man, I think I must have died and went to heaven.

A great picture of Steve Garfield, Amanda Congdon and Zadi Diaz taken last night.

  1. Cool idea re:

    I registered the domain a couple of years ago, with vague intentions of doing something similar in my copious free time. 😉

    I’d give it to anyone who’s interested, and who promises in good faith to actually use it to post/host for sharing and preserving family history stories. There are so many people interested in family history and geneaology these days, this could be a really cool resource.


  2. Yes, and it would be great to use a OPML list as a family tree builder. It would give the “family historian” a break to pass on the job of updating new “folders” as they come online 🙂


  3. Dave,
