annual meeting blogs for nonprofits

We've been boosters of using blogs for single-purpose events, such as nonprofit membership organizations' annual meetings, for some time now -- blogs let you release news, alert on-site reporters and participants to event changes, and even show off your news coverage in real time. This week, as the American Association for the Advancement of Science convenes in San Francisco, it's using a blog, here, for all those purposes. Not to be outdone, AAAS' journal, Science, has its own blog of meeting coverage here. Among the findings out this week: Certain types of cocoa may improve blood flow to the brain, covered here by the Associated Press in time for our frigid East-Coast temperatures this week.

I think your comments about blogs at meetings is right on. They really can be a great tool to keep people engaged and interested in the events of the day.
