  1. It appears the muffin didn’t get anything but a cameo in your photo. No mention. Was it delicious? We will never know. How is that blogging the lunch? I expect Long Zheng to cover the entire story. ๐Ÿ˜›

  2. If we look at all the speakers’ photos, it becomes obvious that the sessions were an attempt to figure out whether the serious-looking people are better bloggers or the funky-looking ones. I hope that the funky-looking ones won out, otherwise I will now have to buy a tie ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. @ Long Zheng: Great pics!

    @Arjeet: I wouldn’t expect anyone to call me funky these days, but I’m not wearing a tie. So now I’m wondering, can I be a good blogger still? :-s
