This summer I have had a crazy travel schedule so I was not able to attend the OSCON conference in Portland. I really need to get out there one of these days. Fortunately, the O'Reilly bloggers and Matt Raible have great notes from the conference. The speaker presentations are posted on the OSCON site and the keynotes are supposed to be available on BlipTV but I just checked and they don't seem to be there yet. While "virtually" attending a conference doesn't provide all the social and interactive benefits of physically being there, it is better than nothing.
