web 2.0 conference

I'm sitting in my first panel. It sucks. Perhaps it's I'm simply frustrated by my lack of election news coverage. Perhaps it's that none of the rooms have enough seats for everyone ...so I'm sitting on the floor for 90 minutes and my back is killing me. Perhaps it's that I'm tired of conferences with poorly moderated panels -- there's got to be a better communication and engagement model for conferences. I hope it gets better from here....and I hope I can get up from the floor.
