    Good job guys. Are you going to put the sermons in the sermon forum?

    This is quite cool, especially if it is the first “liveblogging” a conference in australia. though i differ slightly in the definition of “liveblogging”. Have you ever checked out gizmodo/engadget’s liveblogging of major tech events/cons, they’re more updated-by-the-minute style :)

    Samuel, that’s exactly what I told Jason! Granted this isn’t a tech blog so what Alen and Jason did is pretty typical and it was a great idea they came up with. Looking forward to where they take the live blogging in the months and years to come.

    Glen – Thanks for the comment. Probably won’t put the sermons up since it’d take a lot to get all the permissions necessary… guess you’ll have to order the set. :P

    Samuel/Farid – What we did this time is pretty typical of how I’ve seen live blogging done at other Christian conferences except that we kept it more objective and did very little in the way of interpreting or commenting on what was said and done. Perhaps next time we need to do a bit more of that…

    I found it hard to give enough detail without being tedious… you know, who wants to read through the minutia… any thoughts on that?

    This “liveblogging” seems great. But as for what Ps Phil said about us being effective right here in our own areas, and you’ll be helping world evangelism. Well, yes and no. You see the problem is that too many youth take this and run with it, and we hardly get any youth on the mission field. Don’t get too comfortable peoples, get out there and see if it’s the thing for you!

    Great idea for conference coverage BTW.

    When I referred to being “effective right where they are in their own churches,” what I had in mind was nothing close to being “comfortable.” I was thinking more along the lines of being the same kind of Christian at home that we expect our missionaries to be on the mission field.

    Thanks for the comment. :)
