Iranians on the Internet Conference in San Francisco

Iranians on the Internet Flyer
I heard about the “Iranians on the Internet” conference a couple of weeks ago and was planning to attend because I was going to be in the Bay Area, then a friend sent it along suggesting I go but my trip had been canceled, so that was a big bummer. But today I managed to wrangle a way to get up there, thanks to some very kind colleagues who are driving up and agreed to take me along.

You know what that means: live blogging! I’m told there will be wi-fi, so if all goes well, check back here on Saturday for frequent posts about the Iranian blogosphere that attends. Likely it’ll be similar to the Iranian Alliances Across Borders posts covering their conference in April, but there may be some very exciting follow-up to this coverage. I have to stay mum about that until it happens (if it happens). Just cross your fingers, please!

Since I can’t find a website for this conference anywhere, the details are in the image above and also typed out here, in case someone is desperately searching for them on some search engine like I was:

They don’t have a website ??? This is like having a conference on computers but holding somewhere that doesn’t have electricity.

I’m planning on making it, though probably for a half-day, since I have a two-places-at-once conundrum on Saturday.
