I've been neglecting my blogging duties of late - Blame it on road trips. Fortunately, travel was for two great events - the Razorfish Client Summit and the Inbound Marketing Summit - Both were excellent. Of course I also managed to pick up the obligatory nasty cold during many hours at airports.
I'm most looking forward to the EMC World Blogger's Lounge, sponsored by our friends at ZDNet. It's a bit of an experiment, and we're very much open to hearing how we can tailor it to your needs. It's open to anyone who blogs (or microblogs)... All you have to do to get in is sign up in the comments section below... Tell us who you are and give a link to your blog, if you would.

We'll have some special badge bling on day one... Stop by to pick it up as it's your 'key' to access the lounge throughout the event. Okay - we won't make you have it blinking ALL the time...
We'll be giving away a few Flip cameras with hopes that winners capture their EMC World experience and share it with us. Winners will be announced first thing Monday at EMC World and posted here as well (No employees on this one - sorry). Stop by, say hi and see if you are the proudowner of a shiny new Flip camera.
I said this was an experiment, right? Well, we're going to try crowdsourcing the weeks' activities. We'll have a white board in play - and if there are people, topics, etc that you'd like to discuss or meet, simply add it to the board and we'll do our best. So far you've expressed interest in meeting some of the EMC Bloggers - and we'll make that happen.
Lastly, we'd ask you folks to tag your world content with EMCWorld. At the end of the day, we look at this as an opportunity to better get to know one another... And how better than to ensure we're aware of the conversations?
Sign up if you haven't... Truly looking forward to meeting all of you!
