This weekend I attended the BlogHer '06 conference in San Jose. It was great, better than last year. A handful of law bloggers attended. I finally met J. Craig Williams of May it Please the Court, whom I've known by email for quite a while. I was able to recognize him only because he has his photo on his site. I also met Cathy Kirkman, author of the Silicon Valley Media Law Blog. Turns out she and I are practically neighbors. Cathy was a speaker at one of the sessions, "Transforming Your Life. Yes, With Blogging." Best quotation: "A blog for lawyers is like an extended handshake." Finally, I met Lauren Gelman (blog: Gelman Blog), who worked for the Stanford Law School Center for Internet & Society, and authored the amicus curiae brief that I joined last year in the Apple v. Bloggers case. General news coverage of the conference can be found at CNET, "Blogging, Her Way," and in the San Jose Mercury News, "Female Bloggers Revving Up."
