  I-KNOW: first evening

I'm in Graz, Austria,getting ready for I-KNOW conference tomorrow. I had a nice evening, but now I sit and wonder how can I recognise Jay Cross if I see him? My BlogTalk experience says that people don't look that their on-line pictures :) Looking forward to hear Jay's keynote about learning.

Don't know if and how I will be blogging this conference, as I'm still not sure about conference blogging after BlogTalk (Sebastian too)

By the way, German keyboard layout is just a little better than French, but still not easy for me.

Updats: just talked to Jay Cross, so one thing is easier :)

  Life, like autumn silence, is in the details

I went to Parking Lot blog via my referers and I found this:

From the Ends to the Beginning is an online bilingual anthology of Russian poetry. Here is a Pasternak poem, about blogging I suppose...

Let's scatter our words... by Boris Pasternak

This is one of my favorite poems by Pasternak, one of those that marked my early teen discoveries in poetry. These words:
But life, like autumn
Silence, is in the details

The only thing I can't help is English that doesn't show the beauty of his words in Russian...

Chris Corrigan, thanks for early morning present.

  Bloggers Gain Libel Protection

Stephen Downes:

Bloggers Gain Libel Protection. Good news for bloggers and services (such as universities) that host blogs: in a U.S. court, they cannot be held liable for the truth of information passed on through this medium. When you think about it, it makes sense: "on blogs or e-mail lists, people aren't necessarily selling anything, they're just engaging in speech. That freedom of speech wouldn't exist if you were held liable for every piece of information you cut, paste and forward." Imagine what life would be like if you were responsible for the truth of everything that was said or repeated in your building. It would be absurd - and it would also be absurd in blogspace. By Xeni Jardin, Wired News, June 30, 2003 [Refer][Research][Reflect]
I knew that blogging had something to do with the freedom of speech :)
