Hi Brian,

This sounds interesting. I visited the site but I am unsure of how to register to participate in the events. Does one just visit that site the day of?

My understanding is that it will be free and involve just showing up on the days that something interests you.

It is based on the Global PR Blog so I looked at it. It appears blogs and/or podcasts appear on those scheduled days and the discussion start.
