The next time I take minutes at a meeting at work, I'm going to call it liveblogging.

Is this just to save money on paying a transcriptionist?

I don't get it.

Okay, so it's not self-evident - I thought it was cool that they were opening up the goings-on of a private event, especially with so many interesting people. The 'liveblogging' bit just happens to be the method.

I was reading through that list of names, and, didn't recognize a single one, until, whoa!, Guido van Rossum, the creator of Python :)

Which prompted me to click the link, and, find that, there wasn't anything for him yet :(

I'm so disappointed that I probably won't bother to check later :(

James Gosling is the guy who created Java. So you should recognize that name too.
