D3: Suppressing the Blogosphere!

Attentive readers (and there may be one or two perhaps: hardened recidivists with nothing better to do, what with new filtering software installed on prison computers), may have noticed that I am posting less today. That’s because the Wi-Fi access…

Attentive readers (and there may be one or two perhaps: hardened recidivists with nothing better to do, what with new filtering software installed on prison computers), may have noticed that I am posting less today. That’s because the Wi-Fi access I enjoyed in the Four Season’s ballroom yesterday was a “mistake.” An extraordinarily rude, if obviously harried, conference organizer told me that “Walt and Kara’s policy” is that no one should be blogging from the conference room–let alone surfing the Web or doing email. We are to pay attention. We are to listen. It wasn’t easy getting all these luminaries onstage, thank you, and they would be annoyed if they knew that thoughtless bloggers were posting off-the-cuff reports from the floor.

I am being glib, facetious, what-have-you… But I honestly do think it’s a little odd that D3 won’t allow live blogging. It seems a very retrogade move. I will therefore blog less frequently today–writing in a text editor in the conference room, and attaching myself to hotel’s broadband network during breaks in order to post entries. Perhaps in the interval between walking from the ball room floor and posting, an appropriate, contemplatative mood will fall over me, and I will rewrite my observations in a fashion that would please Kara and Walt.
