I will play in Peiora (aka coming attractions)

It's an exciting week for those of us in the field of sports communications research. The International Association for Communication and Sport is holding its 5th Summit on Communication and Sport at Bradley University in Peoria, Ill. I'm excited and honored to be a part of the conference. I will be presenting a study I did about Deadspin on Friday afternoon. (I'll have my presentation posted to Slideshare on Friday night.)

If you're interested in this stuff, you can follow the conference on Twitter or by using the #sportsummit12 hashtag. I'll be Tweeting from the conference (@bpmoritz), though I'm not sure how much. I always wonder how much value people get from live Tweets from a conference. But I'm planning on using Storify as a tool to blog the conference and capture some of the conversations going on.

It's an exciting week in this world, and I'm looking forward to learning a lot and sharing it with all of you.
