Ethan Zuckerman, the quintessential liveblogger at conferences, has written one of the most authoritative posts on Liveblogging that I’ve found. Liveblogging an event is something of an art, it’s where you try to blog the speakers in real-time, and post the article shortly after they are done. Not everyone is good at it, not everyone does it the same way, and not everyone should do it.
Honestly, I was stunned to see Ethan’s posts go live 5 minutes after a speaker finished talking – full of links, solid commentary and useful information. This post helps explain the how behind it all.
