Gnomedex 6.0, a blogger's high tech convention, starts tomorrow. Instead of having lots of panels of various experts, they are holding many sessions related to social networking, social marketing, and of course, the tools.
John R. Edwards, the Director of the Center for Poverty, Work, and Opportunity at UNC-Chapel Hill, and senior advisor for the Fortress Investment Group, is the keynote speaker on Friday. As part of his work in discussing poverty and other related issues, many of them related to legislation as he was a vice-presidential candidate in 2004, he has used podcasting, blogs, GCasts (audio blog) and vblogs in soliciting questions and opinions.
The conference arranger, Chris Pirillo of Lockergnome, was mentioned last week about a tool he created called gada.be. The tool changed its name yesterday to tagjag.
