Check out the Elderblogger-PhoneCon badge at the top of the right sidebar. Go there. Click it.
OR, try this other explanation here.
Ronni Bennett of Time Goes By (one of my regular reads) is hosting a blogosphere get-together on Oct. 24th. A Virtual Party, if you will. Ronni called it a kaffeeklatch, but I'll be bringing virtual Mimosas! and maybe some of Joe's Screaming Stuffed Jalapeno Poppers (also virtual, of course).
Really, if you've never been to a phone party, go to this one.
You don't have to be old, you don't have to blog - it will help if you like people who do, but even that is not required.
You don't even have to TALK - lurking is acceptable here.
And if you think you won't like it - go anyway. You can't really have an opinion if you don't check it out. And if you DO not like it, all you have to do is hang up.
"See" you there. :)
