Roger Renteria (techiewriter.com) provides some advice for attending the Summit, Kai Weber (kaiweber.wordpress.com) writes about the full assimilation of Twitter into conferences, the myths of innovation, and the courtesy and friendliness that makes STC Chicago SO great. He also summarizes some of the sessions he attended, including dealing with change.  Larry Kunz (sdicorp.com/Resources/Blog) posted his Lightning Talk slides on writing for George Jetson, and Tom (idratherbewriting.com) talks about collaboration options if wikis are dead.
Sarah Maddox (ffeathers.wordpress.com) discusses getting started with HTML5, publishing to mobile devices, what technical writers should do when everything “just works,” and provides a great summary of her conference experience.  TechWhirl’s Pinterest board gives you some of the flavor of the Summit in pictures.
