BlogWorld Expo- Thursday Kickoff (Updated With Photos)

BlogWorld Expo kicked off this morning in Las Vegas.
Actually, there were a few private meetings yesterday but today the public session opened with speakers at 8:45 AM.

Town Hall, an event sponsor, has a prominent booth set up at the conference.
Hugh Hewitt and Michael Medved were going to broadcast their shows live from the expo.

Katie Favazza, who writes with Town Hall, was representing Town Hall at the booth this morning.

This was cool…

I looked up during the first panel session I attended and saw this on the screen.

The first panel was exceptional. I plan on posting a great clip from this session later on.

Professor David Perlmutter (not pictured) moderated the session on “The Power of the Political Blogosphere.” Panel members included: (left to right) Dave Nalle, Hugh Hewitt, Brad Friedman (Brad’s Blog), Taylor Marsh, Dean Barnett (Weekly Standard), Pam Spaulding (Pam’s House Blend).

Much more later on…
I am getting ready for my panel session at 4 PM.

UPDATE—-
