Chicago Won’t Be the Same
The Chicago River is still recovering from last night’s Open Comments Night.
Once again, someone took on the challenge of live blogging the event. This week it was Mike Samsone of Converstations. Take a read of his post,
UPDATE: So did Scot Herrick.
The Link Virus Epidemic
Link Leak Virus is a special strain of the indie virus with blogtipping mutations that occur in threes. On Open Comments Night the virus got out of control. Here are some cool links that were shared:
Dr. WhoÃ¢â¬â¢s ship
The Creative Coast Blogs
Smoke and Mirrors
NO SPEC Campaign

Link Leak Virus Still Raging Today!
As you can see, I apparently brought home a strain of the virus. The links are still leaking to everyone who attended. Take a look at who’s ailing now. Oh it’s all my fault. All they did was participate and have fun. This is a cautionary tale of safe blogging.
Joe started the conversation talking about the mike in Chicago. Chris Cree brought the Klondike bars. Rod stopped by, even though it’s finals week, and Mike Samsone hung out while he waited for the next train.
Trisha wasn’t going to comment, but couldn’t resist the fun. Then along came Ben and his code-writing donkey. Cat stopped to say she couldn’t stay. Then found 200 comments in her email subscription.
Claire Tompkins gave us a lesson in taiko that was “hella fun.” Scot Herrick discussed drinking Merlot while reading about the business of beer. HART agreed that as a Canadian he really does know everyone.
Jamsi brought Liz some Australian wine.

Oh, Geze Ben. Your donkeyÃ¢â¬â¢s drooling again. Can ya tell him to behave around Trisha? SheÃ¢â¬â¢s new here.

Damn donkey. Soon as I get on the keyboard he starts hovering over my shoulder asking inane questions.
Hi Trisha – pleased to meet you.
Joe – good luck with Darren tomorrow, I feel your Blogger pain. IÃ¢â¬â¢d be curious how you got that interview with DarrenÃ¢â¬Â¦
I never did find out whether The Teacher is into the Doctor.
