The Conference

I spent the weekend in London attending the Libertarian Alliance conference which was held in association with Libertarian International. Several of the regular bloggers from Samizdata were present including Brian Micklethwait who now has his own education blog. Also there were Patrick Crozier of Croziervision and UK Transport, Alice Bachini of A Libertarian Parent in the Countryside and Tim Evans of CNE Health.

What I found surprising in this large gathering of British, European and North American libertarians was just how many were not familiar with the world of blogging. This is actually reassuring. The blog is a wonderful propaganda tool for spreading libertarian ideas and at the conference I realised that we are only just starting to use it.
