Well, it’s finished now but we can still learn from it. I’ve been following it from my iPad thanks to a couple of my favourite bloggers who were there and shared their experiences with us.
First of all, I follow GeniAus aka Jill Ball from NSW / who not only wrote posts while she was there but has recorded short interviews with exhibitors in the Exhibition hall and people she met in the official Media centre. They are available on her Youtube channel “Jill Ball”. Jill included several photos in her posts to give us an idea of what it was like to be there.
Secondly is US’s Roberta Este’s blog DNAeXplained. Roberta blogged in very great detail about who she heard speak (or not, if she hadn’t been able to get a seat) and who she met in the Exhibition hall . Her blog is alive with photos which I really appreciated; I particularly enjoyed the changing view of the snow capped mountains from her hotel. It’s great to be able to put faces to names you normally only hear about. Although, how you ever find anyone when there are nearly 15000 people attending this major event, I don’t know.
