Chemical blogspace getting physical at the ACS?

Lamentations on Chemistry is proposing to meet at the next ACS meeting in Chicago. I think this is an excellent idea, and hope to meet the other bloggers in chemical blogspace in person. Mitch replied that a similar thing was done at the previous ACS meeting.

Interestingly, the program of the meeting contains talks on blogging too:

CHED 25: "Teaching organic chemistry with blogs and wikis" Jean-Claude Bradley
... The evolution in the use of blogs and wikis in the teaching of undergraduate organic chemistry classes will be described, both as convenient tools to deliver course material and as platforms for student assignments. ...

CHED 21: "Blogging the culture of chemistry" Michelle M. Francl
... The Culture of Chemistry blog explores the relationship between chemistry, chemists and everything else. The connections between science content blogs and science culture blogs will be explored using the Culture of Chemistry as a jumping off point. ...

What about Monday or Wednesday afternoon?
