During VSS 2009 in Austin, there will be a live VSS conference wiki, presentations and other social networking online to allow attendees to interact in real time and engage in discussions about the trends, issues and programs discussed at the conference. For those who are not able to attend in person due to budget restrictions, some presentations will be broadcast over the Internet and this will be an opportunity to stay involved in discussions.
