MilBlog Conference

For better or for worse, Murdoc is sitting on the ‘Rapid Fire’ panel at this weekend’s MilBlog Conference along with LTC P of Op-For, Noah Shachtman of Danger Room, Eagle1, Neptunus Lex, and Captain Anthony Deiss of CENTCOM. The panel is being man-handled moderated by John Donovan of Castle Argghhh!.

That’s obviously some impressive company, and I’m honored to be part of it.

Anyway, the panel looks like it’s going to be a bit free-form, so I’m wondering if anyone has some suggestions for topics, let me know. There are several panels, all of them staffed by top-notch folks, so general ideas like “maybe discuss how the media isn’t helping things” will probably get covered ad nauseum. But if you had a chance to choose a couple-minute topic to get addressed, what would it be?

Let me know in the comments.

(And if you’re going to be at the conference, be sure to let me know so we can chat a bit. Last year I missed several folks that I really wanted to at least meet-n-greet, and this year is probably going to be even more chaotic exciting.)


  1. Yeah I have a suggestion, DON’T SUCK. I’ll be watching. Also, you’re up there with Slab now. The good colonel couldn’t make it, alas.

  2. Murdoc, I look forward to meeting you and saying hello. I’ll be the one with no hair and the grey goatee. Oh, look for the black tropical shirt with the ‘Birds of Paradise’ flowers on it….. heh… Respects,

  3. Heh. I’ve got a special tropical shirt myself for Friday’s cocktail. I got it especially to honor the naval guys on my panel. Lookin’ forward to meeting you.

  4. I’ll be there, but sadly my new tshirt that reads, ‘No one reads your crappy blog’ doesn’t look like its going to arrive in time…
