The women (and some men) of the blogosphere gathered this weekend in San Diego for the first BlogHer conference, and there's a summary of live-blogging and chat transcripts up for those that missed it (myself included, unfortunately). Topics included: Legal Tips/Journalism, How to Be Naked, Blogs in Academia, Women who Want to Fund, Build, & Sell Things, and much, much more. Audio and video are included wherever available. Plus, our own Laura Barcella was there live-blogging, and you can check her posts out here. (BlogHer)
