NAA’s Nexpo: Newspaper conference this week

The big annual newspaper industry conferences are this weekendVin Crosbie explains why he won’t be there and Pegasus News chimes in.
Meanwhile, there will be moblogging (RSS) from the IFRA newspaper techniques team, and a blog from The Digital Edge of the NAA for and by conference participants.
I read through the sessions and could not find anything about RSS, newsreaders, or social media.
Or Craigslist, Tribe or Bakotopia. Or hyperlocal citizen journalism.
Or local vertical search.
Parallel universe?
