ExplorePAhistory and Corbis Bettman

I'm going to leave my laptop computer at home for the conference — my first work-related trip since the mid-1990s without one. But I'm bringing my (work-assigned) iPad, and stuffing my ongoing work into the cloud of Google Docs and Dropbox in an attempt to keep up. I' m surprised at how nervous this strategy is making me.

But it also made me wonder: How are you all planning to work, stay connected, take notes, follow social media, and so on during ScienceWriters 2010? Anyone have any good plans — software or hardware?
