UPDATED: I got the links for the Closing Keynote, Living the Truman Show, from Katy this afternoon, so I've added them below. It is in 8 segments on YouTube.
This post is just one big link-fest, mostly to point you to all the video taken by our official conference videographer, Katy Chen. To fill in the blanks on the Community Keynote I've also included links to some of Gena Haskett and Elaine from Wannabe Hippie's videos. At the end you will find a link to the videos you all submitted yourselves at the CNN iReport table.
I thought long and hard before writing this little post, because I had such a fantastic time at the conference in San Francisco this year. I have just one little complaint to make, and I know that at the very least, the conference attendees who sat with me at lunchtime will agree, since the topic came up while we ate.
I'm back from BlogHer '08 and it was such a jam packed weekend, I'm still processing all the great experiences. The women were as varied as their blogs, the parties were loud and fun, and the event itself ran, from my point of view, flawlessly.
Melissa Silverstein of Women & Hollywood and I had the pleasure of hosting an entertainment bloggers' meet-up and I wanted to use this first post after BlogHer '08 to showcase some of those women and their blogs. Anyone I don't mention in this post, I will make every effort to mention in upcoming posts.
If you're headed to the BlogHer Conference tomorrow and didn't happen to catch it in your inbox OR if you're not attending but want to know what's goin' on, you are invited to download the BlogHer '08 Conference Brochure.

So, jumping on the bandwagon with the community's and Maria Niles's phenomenal guides to surviving BlogHer, I thought I would add one appropriate for the 1) sponsors, 2) networking non-bloggers, or 3) corporate bloggers trying to meet bloggers. All this stuff about introversion and wearing the right shoes seem irrelevant to you?
Updated: As per Miriam's comment below, the event is now full. Thanks for your enthusiastic response!
