Conference Catchup

A brief window of opportunity arises in between arriving home and quality time spent with the family before a day spent on the budget at Council tomorrow and another conference (Are you going to the LGA Fire Conference in Bristol? See you there!). The window of opportunity is apparently called Larkrise to Candleford.

So, if you were terribly busy during conference, (because, eg, you were at conference) here’s what you missed.

12 second videos
Kudos to Helen Duffett this weekend. She not only trained hundreds of delegates, organised formal and informal meetups of bloggers, tweeted, twitpicked and worked like a dervish – she also persuaded Nick Clegg and Howard Dean to use the brand new 12 second internet service that’s sweeping the nation. No matter how busy you are, you have 12 seconds to spare, right? We also made this one of me clicking my fingers, and you are probably too busy for that.

Audio files
We podcast Howard Dean’s speech as soon as we could after he gave it.

We also made a recording of our successful inaugural fringe event, “Lessons learned from the Obama campaign.” You can listen to both of these in your web browser – or why not put them on your iPod to listen to whilst delivering leaflets? Search for Lib Dem Voice in the iTunes Store.

Video coverage
So far we have videos of the speeches by Howard Dean and Simon Hughes. In the fullness of time, more will be available.

Session coverage
Alix has typed her fingers to the bone this weekend, as well as taking on the stressful position of chairing a fringe meeting. So don’t miss her wonderful write-ups of as many of the major conference events as possible:
Friday night
Higher education
Howard Dean
Vince Cable
Schools paper – our 5-19 education policy
Sunday morning
Nick Clegg’s speech
