I did want to see how people were reacting (previous and ongoing) to the conference. On the "Cleveland 2.0" mailing list, a spreadsheet was circulated that contained all of the participants' names and emails. So, I wrote a one-off script that went through each person and googled his or her name or email address and looked at the top 5 google results for the query and mined into each URL looking for a something that contained an RSS feed (I was assuming that if it had a feed it was a blog). Out of the 96 people in the spreadsheet, I came away with less than 10 blogs. I figured this was in error. I had assumed that these people are eminent "technologists," so they would have to have an Internet presence... right? So, I did it by hand (lots of Googling).
I'm not sure how these people have stayed off Google's radar, but ~90% of the people on the list had no Internet presence at all. (Apparently, they don't buy into my take — You Are a Brand.)
Since I had gone to all of that leg work, I decided "what the heck" and built a Planet for it. It's located at http://planet.case.edu/cleveland2.0/. So for people (like me) who wanted to follow along, there you go.
