Blog writers Danyl McLaughlan and Giovanni Tiso have earned themselves hordes of online followers. Hear them talk the tech and more with chair Dave Armstrong.

In the age of the blog, how is the written word received, rated, and disseminated? Does worldwide and instantaneous access to writing put new pressures on the writer? Danyl McLaughlan and Giovanni Tiso have a large following of their respective blogs, The Dim Post and Bat, Bean, Beam. Now McLaughlan has moved into the world of print with his novel Unspeakable Secrets of the Aro Valley.

Chair: Dave Armstrong
