Had a great talk of about 35 minutes. I will link to folks' blogs and stuff in a few minutes, but I just realised I hadn't posted this yet. Flash player coming soon too.

Your paper acknowledges bloggers?
Ours has plenty of bloggers that work for the paper or blog on behalf of the paper, but what's all this business about recognizing a job well done? I won't stand for it! (actually, I'll give a standing ovation for it.
All available on the Events page at Florida Creatives, there are some new additions to the page there.
