Our UIUC and NCSA colleagues should be basking in the glory of this remarkable conference.  Great glowing words on Twitter and this on Google Wave.
The more I explore this (digital) conference setting, the more enthusiastic I get - I will never thank HASTAC enough for setting this up. I am new both to the wave and to second life but I like to instrumentally take the opportunity to plunge both in the content AND the (technological) context of the conference. I love experiencing (probably for the first time) a series of incredible advantages: no panels overlap, continual exchange of ideas both in real-time and in belated interaction modes, multimedia uninterrupted presentations, joining events at your convenience (trying to fit the conference into your own schedule) and being able to catch up in a very short time with discussions you missed. I am still exploring though (and yes, I found the googlewave video tutorials useful too and I therefore recommend them).
