Will easy and inexpensive publishing technology change the face of politics, business, journalism, the law, medicine, engineering and education? Is a revolution underway, or are weblogs just the latest Internet craze? Harvard Law School’s Berkman Center for Internet and Society will be hosting a conference this weekend that will explore these issues. Educators, journalists, scientists and representatives of political campaigns will be among the participants discussing how new publishing technologies are changing their industries.

Saturday’s conference session is for registrants only (see for more details). Sunday’s session is free and open to the public. The public session, which will be held in Pound Hall, will include sessions on weblogs in presidential politics, weblogs for beginners, and weblogs and the law.
