The 2009 IASPR conference has now begun, and you can read the tweets via Twitter. The hashtag is #romcon. Book Thingo is archiving them for posterity:
IASPR 2009 Conference Day 1 Morning
IASPR 2009 Conference Day 1 Afternoon
IASPR 2009 Conference Day 2 Morning
ABC News Queensland has a video report about the conference. That's due to expire in November, but Associated Press has a video report on the conference which includes the same quotes from Glen Thomas, Toni Johnson-Woods, Eric Selinger and Sarah Frantz.
