It seems like I just got home from DMA06 in San Francisco, CA and now I'm off tow Vegas again for Webmaster World. Vegas boggles my mind. I don't gamble, bars and nightclub entertainment are not for me, but even so I always have a wonderful time in Vegas. It is the people-watching capital of the US. I also can't remember having a bad meal in Vegas.
Pubcon should be fun. I'm on three panels -- blogging, podcasting and duplicate content issues. All three are areas that I have had recent relevant experience. Large changeable sites almost all have duplicate content issues that must be dealt with. They are one of the most interesting and challenging technical puzzles in search -- how to not be penalized for having duplicate content by search engines.
Before I go; however, I still have a lot of work to get done, sooo it will be heads down again for a little while longer.
