It's Alive!!! The CALL/ACBD 2006 Conference Blog

I'm pleased to be one of the admin group, along with Michael Lines and Steve Matthews, helping put together CALL's first ever conference blog! Thanks to Michael Lines for all his hard work setting it up and putting together a fabulous design. When you visit the blog you will see we have retained all our "work in progress" discussion so everyone can see what went into creating this blog. While blogs can be very quick to set up, a lot of thought went into this one. It has quickly become my favourite place to post as far as ease of posting goes.

I really hope CALL members, other delegates, and those who are unable to attend the conference, will participate as bloggers and as commenters leading up to and during the conference. This is going to be a lot of fun. Do let us know if you would like to try out blogging!!

Here's the official announcement from HQ:

Dear member,

This year, for the first time, the annual conference will be complemented by a collective blog: CALL Blog 2006

Bloggers from all regions, as well as those new to blogging, are invited to contribute.

We hope to offer descriptions of and reactions to the conference sessions and social events, as well as other aspects of the Edmonton experience, including weather updates and travel tips. Two of Canada's top law bloggers, Connie Crosby and Steve Matthews, are already on board. If you are interested in contributing, contact Michael Lines at

The conference planning committee would also like to remind all those planning to attend the upcoming conference in Edmonton that early bird registration rates are available until the end of the week.
