The Conference Is Today

The First International Jewish Bloggers Conference, that is.

Hope to see you all and those who can't be there, hope you see us all (there's a real-time stream broadcast, or whatever they call it at the site).

I'm on at 8PM Israel time.

And note:

I really haven't the faintest idea why I was asked to be on the panel.

My daily traffic isn't stupendous (although I did once, once, hit over 20,000 within 36 hours).

I do not get commented on in any numbers whatsoever.

I don't think I pop up with any regularity at other bloggers.

Not that many argue with me.

I do not write in a very "personal" vein.

While I concentrate on political issues, themes connected with Yesha and media bias, I do try to include Jewish matters, humor, photographs and other weird posts just to be irregular.

I am not single so I lose out on the vast majority of the Jewish blogosphere (I think).

And you don't really have to listen to what I will be saying.

But it's nice to have been invited to a panel even if I didn't make the flight.

Winkie - I was planning to be there but an actual WORK meeting is scheduled for the same time, so I'm depending you to lead your panel discussion well, so that if I can get home in time to hear it via the live stream.

Also - your lucid words in report of the whole convention will be, of course, very welcome!
