Meet the Bloggers @IPBC2009

Coming to Chicago for the IP Business Congress? We're getting together to wrap up the conference at the Billy Goat Tavern on Michigan Avenue on Tuesday, June 23rd, at 5 pm 'til they kick us out. Look for the Billy Goat Tavern sign shown in the photo above.
Another sign reads: "Cheezborger, Cheezborger, Cheezborger. No Pepsi. Coke," These words, with Pepsi and Coke in reverse order, were originally spoken by John Belushi in, "Olympia Cafe," an early Saturday Night Live sketch that was inspired by the tavern.
Who are the bloggers you'll meet at the Billy Goat Tavern?

David Donoghue of the Chicago IP Litigation Law Blog will be there, of course. Dave's been there before, so he made the arrangements and thinks he knows who else might be coming to Meet the Bloggers.

IP Strategist Duncan Bucknell of IP Think Tank has confirmed he'll be there, all the way from Australia.

Dave! Gulbransen will stop by on his way home from work.

Peter Zura at The 271 Patent Blog says, "I will be attending, along with numerous other bloggers, including David Donoghue from the Chicago IP Litigation Blog, who also happens to be organizing a "meet the bloggers" session on the evening of June 23 (link). Many of us should be providing "on the scene" reports from the event. Hope to see you there!"

And the Editor of Blawg Review, yours truly, will be there, for sure.

If you're planning to be there, let us know by email to and we'll add your name and links to this post as soon as we know you're coming.

No doubt, there will be reporters there from the IPBC2009 sponsor IAM Magazine to meet the bloggers in person and get some stories to take home with them. They're from the UK, so we expect they'll appreciate the choice of venue. Joff Wild, Editor of the IAM Magazine wrote on the iam blog, "If I am still capable of thought and movement by then, I may even pop in myself."

We'll keep this post at the top of Blawg Review until the event, and from there we'll be tweetin' @blawgreview to keep you posted and let you know who all is havin' fun @IPBC2009.

Everyone is welcome to come out and meet the bloggers!
