My Plea to Attend Buzz2009

There are some meetings you hate to be a part of and there are some you wouldn't want to miss for the world. You can count Buzz2009 in the "wouldn't want to miss" category for me.

Buzz2009 is a conference for people interested in social media who are beyond the introductory "What is Twitter?" phase and fully enmeshed in the use of it from day-to-day.
