Event Details

At SharePoint Conference 2009 in Las Vegas, MetaVis Technologies and worked together to co-ordinate 30 live bloggers from the floor and sessions of the conference. It was a great hit, with over 3000 people following online. We actually logged over 27,000 tweets and thousands of live updates!

We're going to team up and do the same thing again for SPTechCon 2010 in Boston, October 20 - 22, 2010, and would like for you to join us. There are multiple ways to participate, as described below. You can tweet, you can live blog, you can lurk. We'll provide the platform, you provide the content. We will display everything on a 100 inch monitor on the conference floor so that those in attendance can see what's going on.

Those who can't attend can still participate and follow. Keep reading for more details...

What's an live blogger?
I have setup a platform on the site that will allow people to post directly to the blog in a constant live stream. When you attend a session, have your laptop open and type a paragraph or two. When you've got a little content, click the publish button and it will go directly into the live stream at With 25 of us doing together, we can get some nice coverage, With 100 of us, who knows?

To participate as a live blogger, you'll need a laptop or netbook in order to update the blog stream. We will be providing site wide WIFI access, so all you'll have to do is type and hit "Enter". 

What's a TwitterBug?
When you attend an event like SPTechCon 2010 Boston, there are a couple twitter hashes floating around. If you attach one of those hashes to a tweet, it will go into a specific tweet stream. We will be tracking all of the twitter hashes for this event. The hash for  SPTechCon 2010 Boston is #SPTechCon

An TwitterBug is a specific kind of Tweet. You won't have to attach any hashes to get your tweets into the stream... that will be handled automatically.

What's a Live Blog Follower?
Many people are disappointed because they won't be able to attend the event because it is sold out or weren't able to put together the funds to go. By registering for the Live Blog Follower ticket, will keep you in the loop with reminders, live streams, tweets.. anything we can think of to help you be involved during the days of the conference. (I'll also be including some "download surprises", also known as Digital Swag, for this group so they can be part of the swag wagon crew, too.)

If you were too late and didn't register for SPTechCon in Boston, register as a Live Blog Follower so you can track all the tweets, live blogs, pictures, videos and live coverage coming out of the conference in Boston!
