    Seasoned bloggers? All the big names will be there. Seems totally legit.

    • What makes it legit or not?

      I’d like to have you on the panel as you are on the better law bloggers I know, and whose blog I read daily. I am just scared for my hosts. ;) Want to come in?

        Just having some fun with the hype. You don’t want me. I scare ’em away with my stories about the blawger life of fast cars, wild sex and vast riches.

        • Seriously, I’d welcome your participation on panel. You’ve made a mark in blogging, whether it be for building a name for yourself, shaping opinion, causing people to think or, as you Saam not knowing why.
