The honor of being the "official" live blogger for Lyra's annual Imaging Symposium can't be overstated, but there are a few obstacles to success.
Without a live WiFi signal in the conference room, I'm sure I pay better attention to the speakers, but blog updates (and maybe even more importantly, fixes to those pesky typos only noticed after the first "publish" command) are not as frequent as I'd like.
Alternatives? Just make the best of it. The walks back and forth to the room and online access during breaks are certainly good exercise -- though they cut down on the networking time. And as much as I like the iPhone, its Safari browser and Edge network are, I must admit, totally inadequate for blog post creation and editing!
