Anyone already near or heading for London, England?
The First Digital Lives Research Conference: Personal Digital Archives for the 21st Century is February 9-11, 2009 at the British Library in St. Pancras, London, England.
This first conference is "a participatory and collaborative one, bringing together researchers, professionals, creators, enthusiasts and the digital public."
There's a very interesting array of topics and speakers (although none from Canada?) and one day of the conference will be broadcast into Second Life, to the Khufu Conference Centre in the Elucian Islands archipelago.
More information about the Digital Lives Research Project - publications, a blog, etc.- is available on the website. This project and the conference are sponsored by the British Library, the British Arts and Humanities Research Council, the University of Bristol, and the University College London.
