ETech 2006: The backchannel

Every good conference (or every terribly boring one) has its IRC channel, a chat room where attendees can trade notes or, more often, snark about the speaker. ETech 2006 attendees and non-attendees can access #etech on irc.freenode.net, but the conference is just winding down.

Sean Bonner shows what you missed — he's posted an unedited transcript of the IRC logs during Monday's keynotes.

Stamen Design shows it even better, with a spiderwebby chat visualization and a map of the chatters.
