Blogging and Liability Class with Lauren Gelman at State of Play Academy

At this summer's Blogher Conference, I had the opportunity to hear Lauren Gelman, Associate Director of Stanford Law School's Center for Internet and Society,  and Dean of State of Play Academy present at the blogging communities session called, "So, You Have This Crazy Idea."  She gave us a primer on copyright and fairuse,  shared her experienced from a blogging community for law students, talked about her plans for teaching this topic on the 3-D virtual world, ...more

Doing Good In The Neighborhood

There are many ways in which you can financially support issues, causes and communities you care about beyond the traditional ones we think of such as making a donation to a non-profit organization. Whether it's your corporate or your personal spending, wielding your checkbook wisely can help bring about change. One of the ways in which the BlogHer '06 Conference was able to support a community was through the stuffing of the tote bags given to attendees. In 2005 the bags were stuffed by a handful of volunteers in Elisa's living room. Given that conference attendance nearly tripled in 2006, this option was out of the question if we wanted to maintain our sanity and leave any room in the house for Elisa's kitty, Samantha. ...more

UPDATED: Attn. BlogHer '06 Attendees: Participate in our post-conference survey

Last week we sent out a post-conference survey to recipients of our BlogHer Conferences Newsletter.

Preparing photos for Flickr

I just uploaded some of my photos from BlogHer '06 to Flickr. Flickr has gotten so easy to use, it's a pleasure. The free Flickr Uploader makes fast work of uploading and tagging a batch of photos. Before uploading I do some quick adjustments in Photoshop. I add a Shadow/Highlight adjustment (Image>Adjustments>Shadow/Highlight) or a Levels adjustment (Layer>New Adjustment Layer>Levels) to those photos that need lightening or added contrast. Then I run the Image Processor that's built into Photoshop CS2 (File>Scripts>Image Processor) to quickly resize the photos to fit in a 400x400 pixel space, saving them as jpegs to a new folder. Then I upload the entire folder of fixed images using the Flickr uploader. It's a cinch. ...more
