Some conferences will allow participants to get online by providing a wireless network. Sometimes you can get that wifi to work, sometimes you can get power for your laptop. Another way that NetSquared is different from most conferences is that as we checked in we were given a personalized access key for the secure wifi, which works very well. Every table in the main hall has a powerstrip on it! The message is clear: this event doesn’t just allow us to blog it, they want us to blog it (and flickr it, chat about it, tag about it, etc.)!
They also are hosting a chat room (or “hallway”) for people who are participating in person and/or online. Another great way to follow what’s going on here is to read the blogs of everyone posting on the NetSquared website.
