Next week's Syndicate Conference in SFO

Next week, I'm heading out to San Francisco for the second edition of IDG's Syndicate Conference (disclosure: I'm an unpaid member of the conference's advisory board and have no financial interest in the conference or IDG).  Earlier this year during Syndicate's first edition, I sat on panel about podcasting and mostly talked about its disruptive nature to existing media (including existing Internet media) and how it changed my thinking as an executive editor here at ZDNet and CNET Networks.
