Since the main 4 blogs in Virginia (from both sides of the aisle no less) will not be in attendance, I am not sure the event will end up being very successful.
Here is the list of attendees. I also am wondering how many of those on the list even have a blog. I do not recognize a good number of the names.
Hopefully next year the organizers will try to work with more bloggers to ensure there is a good group in attendance, instead of having only one or two people working on it and hoping it fits everyone else's schedule.
