Blogging > After Hours Photos from BlogNashville

I don't have pictures of many faces from BlogNashville, in part because I'm too bashful for my own good when it comes to taking people's pictures. Here are a couple from the after hours get together at PM's after the conference.

Cartoonist Chris Muir of Day By Day and cartoonist Allen Forkum of Cox and Forkum:


Knoxville News-Sentinel blogger Michael Silence with daughter McKinley. McKinley was the only baby I saw at the conference. She's just over a year old and has already flown on airplanes 42 times.


Melissa, Mary Ann Silence (McKinley's mom, who does a lot of her work in DC), and cartoonist John Cox of Cox and Forkum. Melissa and Mary Ann hit it off. I asked Michael and Mary Ann about the infant chair I had seen in some of Michael's pictures of McKinley. Turns out it's called a Bumbo Seat and the Silences love theirs.


I got to meet Glenn Reynolds briefly at the conference. I had sent him a link to my live-blogging of Hoder's talk. When I ran into him I introduced myself and thanked him for the link. Later he said he had linked to the Dave Winer wrapup. That was about it. Things were crazy, and for him more than me. I hope we can put together an informal blogger meetup here in Knoxville.

Hey, a Knoxville meetup sounds like a great idea. Do it the week following memorial day and I might even be able to attend. How bout June 2nd??

Either way, I'll be heading down your way again over memorial day weekend.

A Knoxville meetup would be a lot of fun. We just need someone to put it together. Any volunteers?
