I'm off to KC today for a conference on economic blogging. It's being sponsored by the Kauffman Foundation, which focuses on entrepreneurship. I'm looking forward to discussing issues like this one: How does blogging affect the economic debate?
I'll post some entries later today once I arrive and tomorrow during the conference when I can. And I'll try my best not to get barbecue sauce on the blog.

“I think the best compliment I can give is not to say how much your programs have taught me (a ton), but how much Marketplace has motivated me to go out and teach myself.” – Michael in Arlington, VA
