Live-blog Alert: Personal Democracy Forum 2009, Day 2 (6/30)

8 years ago

Tomorrow, I'll be live-blogging the following presentations from Personal Democracy Forum 2009, Day 2. I use a program called CoverItLive and embed it in a post on Writes Like She Talks. When the session starts, I start typing as it happens and you can read and/or comment - it's a great way to be there without being there.

I'll make the blog posts live as the sessions get underway and will also be enabling the tool that allows tweets to come into the stream of discussion/commenting going on during the sessions so feel free to access the live-blog from this blog or twitter. If you have any questions, let me know via comments here or e-mail.

I will be working to make sure that the CoverItLive frames are posted here at as well but if you're interested in following a session listed below and you don't see anything here yet, definitely check out WLST. Many thanks to for letting me post about this.
