Posted on: October 21st, 2010 by National Trust for Historic Preservation 1 Comment

Don't cry in your pillow if you can't make it to Austin next week -- we plan on tweeting, blogging, photo-snapping, filming and recording our little hearts out so you can participate virtually in the National Preservation Conference.

Here are all the ways you can follow our Austin adventures:

National Trust staffer Jason Clement demonstrates one way we'll capture the conference for you -- photos! (Sorry, we can't ship a sno-cone to you.)

Virtual Attendee Landing Page

This year we’ve transformed the conference landing page into Virtual Attendee headquarters. The page aggregates all our different channels, either by feed or link. If you’re looking for one-stop shopping, this is it!

Watch the Opening Plenary LIVE

On Wednesday, Oct. 27, our new president Stephanie Meeks will give her first conference address. Watch it live as we stream it the PreservationNation homepage from 6-8 p.m. EST (5-7 p.m. CST).

Twitter: @PresConf

Our official Twitter feed is @PresConf. But you can track all conference tweets (not just ours) by following the hashtag #PresConf. And if you're looking for Austin Unscripted updates, follow #atxunscripted.

Preservation Nation Blog

Check the blog for daily round-ups, conference updates, and other info and viewpoints from on the ground in Austin.

PreservationNation on YouTube

We're going to be covering Austin Unscripted everywhere -- blog, Twitter, website -- but YouTube is really the place you want to be to catch the videos as they roll out. Follow the playlist here.

We'll also be capturing responses, reactions, and interviews once the conference kicks off. Follow the conference playlist here.

Our in-person attendees are capturing their favorite sights and vistas all over the city and putting them here. View the slideshow to feel like you're walking along with them

PresNation on Foursquare and Gowalla

Just in case you missed yesterday's post ... we're now on the geosocial bandwagon! Make some new friends with the folks touring Austin now and save the tips and to-dos for whenever you do make it to the city.

Session Recordings

This year, recorded sessions will be available for sale post-conference. It's a terrific way to capture the complete presentations. More info post-conference on how to purchase and download.

And if all else fails ...

Come to Buffalo Next Year!

Even with all these ways to follow the conference, nothing beats being there in person. So sign up for updates on next year's conference in Buffalo, and we'll keep you in the loop about registration, programming, and all the value that come with in-person attendance.
