MILBLOG Conference April 22, 2006

Andi at Andi’s World has organized a MILBLOG Conference to be held April 22, 2006 in Washington, DC. She’s done an amazing job gathering some top flight talent already, with confirmed participants like Bill Roggio of ThreatWatch (and previously at The Fourth Rail), Austin Bay, Blackfive, Buzz Patterson, and Citizen Smash, among others.

Hosted by the VFW Webcom, Andi has setup a Blog (natch, what else) with all pertinent information. Quoting from the Purpose statement:

The 2006 Milblog Conference will take place in Washington, D.C. on Saturday, April 22, 2006. The conference is designed to bring milbloggers together for one full day of interesting discussion on topics associated with milblogging. We will explore the history of milblogs, as well as what the future may hold for this medium which the military community is using to tell their stories.

The milblog community is diverse, and we intend to showcase the full spectrum of milblogs, including those who have blogged from theater, veteran members of the armed forces, spouses and parents.  

Registration for the conference is free of charge. Due to seating limitations, there are only 300 seats available for this event. Milbloggers and/or members of the military community will be allowed to pre-register. There are 150 seats reserved for the military community.

Pre-registration will begin on February 8 and continue through midnight February 15. Any slots not filled by milbloggers will be given to the general public. Registration for the public will begin on February 16. All registrations are first-come, first-serve.

Attire is casual. 

This conference is not sponsored, sanctioned, censored by, or in any way affiliated with the Department of Defense.
