The first convention blogger

When bloggers were credentialed a lot of people pointed out that this was a first, and someone snarkily commented something to the effect of “uh, there weren’t any blogs in 2000.”
Of course, that isn’t true. Even the word blog was already around by then and there have been blogs for at least ten years.
Furthermore Ken Layne blogged both conventions in 2000. (Ken has some suggested story angles for bloggers at the convention..)
