I am enjoying real-time online BookExpo updates and following Tweets (#BEA09, #BEA2009) from people attending the talks I wish I was attending this year, including the talk on piracy by Tim O'Reilly and Neelan Choksi's presentation at Random House yesterday. This is the first year in a long time that I've missed BookExpo (maybe one other in 15 years). Even in the down years I drew a lot of energy and ideas from being among my industry colleagues. Alas, this is my first year to follow on Twitter.
