Social activities for BlogTalk 2009

BlogTalk 2009 is about to begin in Jeju. All of the speakers have arrived, and we will finish the programme tomorrow.

The number of participants will be between 60 and 70. Although it is a small conference, you will be able to meet and talk with experts interested in the Social Web. Also, we will try to do our best to make the event as convenient as possible for you.

I have attached a new version of the conference brochure with a revised timetable. Please check the timetable if you are speaking or just attending.

Those who want to participate should bring comfortable shoes, and it will take 1.5 or 2 hours, with a return to the hotel by bus.
