And there is much to discuss. The event is going now, so I’m not going to do much blogging for the next few hours. If you are curious what’s going on, the talks are being webcast (direct link here).

See also Graham Attwell, and Stephen Downes offers some sharp criticisms, some of which have been raised so far today. I’ll try to raise a few as well, so far the Hewlett hosts seem genuinely interested in having a frank and freewheeling discussion.
