Travel writers are gathering in Chicago this weekend under the aegis of #tbex (yeah, that’s a twitter hashtag), the Travel Bloggers Exchange. Not coincidentally, the BlogHer 09 conference is in Chicago this weekend too. Both events are sold out. #tbex founder Kim Mance and the tbex team will gather the travel bloggers again this fall at the Blog World New Media Expo in Las Vegas.
I know these things because that #tbex hashtag shows up a lot in the twitter stream this week, and I had to hunt it down to satisfy my curiosity. The idea of travel writers traveling to a travel writer gathering and writing about the trip seems positively RECURSIVE!
