Elisa Camahort sent this exciting news about the upcoming BlogHer conference:
BlogHer '06 is rolling around, and I wanted to pass on the info on the student rate in hopes that you can distribute this info to your SJSU students.
The student rate is $50 for a full two-day pass, so I don't think you can beat that! Includes meals on both days.
We are particularly interested in creating new bloggers, so we have a 2.5 hour workshop kicking off Day One:
Blog in a Box: All the basics for the beginning or prospective blogger. By the end of the session each attendee will have a blog with RSS feeds, a blog roll, and know how to add links/photos to their blog. Basic html will be covered. Miss Zoot and Heathervescent are on hand to walk you through. Plus Melinda Casino will cover basic good blog manners: disclosure, attribution, non-spammy commenting and trackbacks.
UPDATE1: It is on my calander too!
UPDATE2 from an Email, "Steve, Thanks for the heads up. It was really fun and worthwhile last year, so I plan to go again...and maybe take a few students with me this time."
