INFORMS Practice Conference goes Web 2.0 Crazy!

The upcoming INFORMS Practice Conference has embraced new social networking technologies as no INFORMS conference has ever done. You have your choice of

  1. Blogging. A conference blog with a half dozen guest bloggers (including yours truly).
  2. Twittering. Just use the #ipc2009 tag
  3. LinkedIn. I’m not sure the value of a LinkedIn group, but I want to be part of the gang!

Let’s see, what’s left? Facebook? Club Penguin?

This makes a great experiment in what helps people best engage with a conference.
