BlogWorld 2009 starts NOW

As this blog reported yesterday, Blog World Expo 2009 will have an entire medblogger program track devoted to it (YAY!). There were more details from the initial planning meeting posted on Emergiblog just last night. Apparently, there will be eight sessions on the program.

In their initial brainstorming session, they came up with eleven potential topics including the following: Health Care Blogger Code of Ethics, HIPPA, Pharmaceutical companies, Writer's Block, "Bloggin for a livin," Medical corporate america in blogging, Health Policy Issues, Networking inside and out of the medblogosphere, something called "Skeptics Circle," and health advocacy.

Of course, I paraphrased all the topics above (rather badly, I think). To get the more detailed version, I suggest you head on over to the Emergiblog, take a read of the list, and leave comments. I'm going to turn off comments over here in an effort to concentrate all the comments in one place. Put on your thinking caps, boys and girls! Even though we have a year to do this, let's channel this excitement into planning mode for next year. What do you think? This is going to be fun!
