MLA Vicariously

The midwest is hosting MLA in Chicago this year. Unfortunately, your intrepid blog editor will not be attending. [Insert frowny face here.] But this is no problem! I can read all about it in my feed reader!
Of course, there is the official MLA ’08 Blog itself. Lately, the entries have been posted by the Local Assistance Committee Publicity Subcommittee. Nice to see all those Midwest Chapter members contributing!
As I am sure you know by now, MLA held a little contest and chose 10 Official MLA Bloggers. The bloggers will enjoy free wireless internet access at MLA. And it looks like we are going to get some great coverage. The National Program Committee’s Conference Wiki has a blog schedule page where the bloggers are signing up to cover specific parts of the conference program. You can also sign up for a digest or RSS feed of the bloggers’ posts. Right now, there doesn’t seem to be much else on the wiki except advertisements.
But this is even better: I have been using David Rothman’s Yahoo! Pipes feed to monitor the Official MLA Blogger posts. It works well! Thank you David!
Attention Midwest Chapter Members attending MLA: please consider sharing YOUR insights, experiences, and photos here on ConnectMidwest. Contact me and I’ll show you how!
And remember to tag any blog posts and photos with mla2008.
