Emcee James Fallows Expects Blogorrhea Leaks Of Google Zeitgeist 05

Reader P. Webster sends me word that in the
current edition of
transAtlantic, a rundown of happenings related to The Atlantic magazine by that
publication, "Google Zeitgeist 05" emcee James Fallows is expecting news of the
off-the-record event to leak out. It writes:

Fallows admits that with guests representing "a zillion blogs" and some of
the biggest U.S. newspapers, it’s unlikely that anything will remain a big
secret. He doubts there will be articles with Mountain View datelines, but
with so much attention focused on Google these days, he anticipates "a fair
amount of ‘blogorrhea’ on this subject."

Fallows is friends with Google CEO Eric Schmidt, which lead to him
participating in the event:

In fact, Google’s CEO, Eric Schmidt, and its founders, Sergey Brin and
Larry Page, recently invited him to emcee their technology conference,
Zeitgeist ’05: The Google Partner Forum. (Fallows met Schmidt and his wife,
Wendy, both avid Atlantic readers, on a book tour in the 1990s, and their
families have remained friends.)
