Blogging for Your SBDC - Roger and Amelia go to Chicago

As some of you know, Roger and I will be presenting at next week's ASBDC conference in Chicago. As part of our presentation, "Blogging for Your SBDC: Implementing Web 2.0 Technologies at Your Center", we've created a page of resources related to blogging and other Web 2.0 stuff. Some of these resources I've blogged about before, but now they are in one place, along with with links to blogs and other 2.0 creations from SBDC centers around the country.

This looks like it'll be a neat session - good luck! Will it be video- or audio-taped? Any way to get it online? Full disclosure: I'm not an SBDC counselor.

Matt - No videotape, no audiotape. But we can make some links and other info available. And yes, we know you're not an SBDC person, Matt. E-mail me personally - I know you have it somewhere - to remind me.
