I saw this little item on popgadget and thought: I bet just about every BlogHer could use one of these. (Except Halley Suitt who is, we learn today, a woman who prefers a bath.) I have definitely reached either the age, or the level of busy-ness, that necessitates my writing something down if I actually want to have a hope in hell of remembering it. Now, I haven't noticed flashes of brilliance hitting me in the shower particularly, but somehow I think having this erasable note tablet in the shower would inspire such flashes.
At the same time, I feel a little obsessive admitting this appeals to me. Who's with me?
Asked to sum up BlogHer Conference '05 for The San Francisco Chronicle's page one story yesterday, co-Founder Elisa Camahort said, "This is a conference that the community built." (Read Carrie Kirby's story here).
Brilliant woman. Here's some (further) proof below. I rolled out of bed this morning to a mind-boggling 1,000+ photos and hundreds of your posts and have been giggling, exclaiming and, frankly, tearing up ever since. Here's a starter list of links to your writing for your recommendations and improvements:
Trackbacks to yesterday's session schedule (45 thus far)
(Apparently she let 'er rip after The Real Kato threw the creative gauntlet, the one that giggled me all the way out the door last week.)
Rachel's Summer Spin produces the first known BlogHer mashup video featuring Renegade - watch by clicking on the graphic below. Apparently, this video grew out of Rachel's conversation with Markus Sandy, who's sponsoring a couple of BlogHers:
Forget her blistering code and taxonomic acumen, Alexandra Samuel slays with her t-shirt ideas. Now that I've gotten my act together, you can buy them for a short time in the new, non-profit BlogHer Cafe (a temporary off-shoot of the Official BlogHer Gear Store). Alex, I gave you a hat-tip on my favorite and I'm bringing a Sharpie so you can sign mine:
"Enough about me. Let's talk about my blog." --Hat-tip: Alexandra Samuel

Update from the comments: Speaking of Renegade, she's got her videoBlogHer on:
I actually have nothing to say on this topic. But I wanted to be sure that men such as John Welch, and non-childbearing women that he speaks so...intuitively for, have something engaging to read once they arrive on the BlogHer Web site. Something not so base as childcare. Don't know what I'm talking about? Read his comment on Scoble regarding BlogHer.
For those men and women who are OK with conferences built to accommodate women, we hope you'll stay, at least beyond the first post.
Love Scott Rafer's post here saying that real men like to be outnumbered and challenging other guys to sign up for BlogHer.
OK, so that was kind of the point of this post I wrote on my Worker Bees blog last month, but Scott perhaps shows a teensy bit more humor with his approach.
I like it.
And I can't seem to comment on his blog, so I thought I'd say so here.
And now that I've got Scott's attention, I thought I'd also add that I don't like blogs where you have to go through some rigmarole to be able to comment. :)
Oh, and PS-the list he's using is only the list for the Friday dinner, not the registrant list, so it's only fair to say there are a few more men signed up that aren't coming to dinner Friday night...although why they would miss it is anybody's guess! It is fair, however, to say that male registration is so far hanging out at around 10%. Come on dudes!
