Weinberger Blogs the Politics Online Conference

I've found David Weinberger's recent posts from the Politics Online Conference really interesting. All day today he's been feverishly blogging the various goings on, including presentations from Ken Mehlman of the Bush campaign, Joe Trippi and lots of others.
