Its official: I received my badge:
Hence I’m an officially “Approved Blogger” and may attend the second– PhocusWright Blogger Summit At ITB 2009 in Berlin.
Here below is the provisional list of Bloggers who will attend.
I took this provisional list from the PhocusWright site, but had to edit it heavily, as it appeared that a typo monkey had inadvertently inserted a certain link over 80 times into this page….maybe someone was being paid in kind for his speaking at the summit.
Many new faces to meet. Am looking forward to it.
Many new faces from the German language scene, which is a good thing as they have a circuit of their own and it is time to have them connect to the outside world.
For me it is necessary to do some research on the new faces as I’m planning to take a lot of photos like last year and to publish them more timely than last year. Yes I can!

Ah and I found back the Youtube footage of an interview with me last year that Phil kindly produced. I have pasted it now in my About page. It needs some more views:-)
Notes to Self
- Book Hotel
Yes I know. I announced that I would prebook one of the Motels one, but as usual I’m late and that has nothing to do with the fact that I am usually late, but with the fact that I have to plan around our guests and never know on beforehand how many guests I have to leave in the very capable hands of my DW and our dear Back up
- Try to get exception to drive in Berlin for the limo
