Below is a sound recording of the Nick Clegg Q&A that just happened.
We also live-tweeted it – and the tweets will not be displaced from our feed for a few hours yet.
And m’colleague Stephen Tall was live-blogging the session, and his words can be found here.
Earlier tonight, the Blog of the Year Awards reached their fiery climax.
Helen Duffett has already brought you the stunning results, congratulated the winners and commiserated with the runners up.
All that remains is my duty to bring you, the loyal listener at home who maybe can’t be at conference this year, the recording of the proceedings.
And, technology permitting, you should find that below.
Just a very quick note to say this weekend I was invited to go and speak with the people of the House of Comments podcast.
I worried I wouldn’t have much to say.
This proved not to be the case.
Have a listen and let me know what you think.
I always seem to start my podcasts with an apology. In the hurry to bring this recording to you so you can share in the debate the Lib Dems had this morning, I have not yet processed my sound file. It could do with a bit of amplification for sure. And I’m afraid I missed the vital first few moments of Bridget Fox’s speech. And after that, the speeches will be punctuated by the sounds of the hall slowly filling up as the debate progressed, and the frustration of many of the delegates that what looked like prime empty seats were in fact reserved for a monarch who has been dead for over 100 years.
So, please, strain your ears to hear, overlook the bumps, mumbles and whispered asides, and listen to a party that really does get it on the internet.
And if there’s anyone out there can offer new media training for peanuts, do please <!–

Last night a good crowd turned out to hear Paul Burstow MP, Mark Pack, Alex Wilcock and Bridget Fox talk about our new online project, Authoritarianism vs Liberalism and to talk more generally about their work and current campaigns.
As ever, I was there with my trusty Zoom H2 so that we can share the fringe meeting with our listeners at home.
Unfortunately in our efforts to demo our new website to our live audience, we were using a mobile internet service that has had the predictable but unforseen by us consequence of adding a bit of a beepity beepity sound track to the recording, so apologies for that. We have also had to remove the hurried Q&A session from the end because although you could hear the panel’s responses you can’t hear the questioners.
Below, you will find our final fringe event at conference, Beyond Twitter. MP Jo Swinson joined LDV regular Mark Pack and MySociety’s Richard Pope to debate the future of public online engagement with politics.
We still have one more fringe event in the cans ready for sound processing, but I won’t be able to bring that to you just yet.
We were taping ippr’s fringe with our own Editor at Large Stephen Tall along with some relative political unknowns – Shirley Williams, Menzies Campbell and Charles Clarke.
The ippr did say they were recording the event themselves, and their recording is probably better than ours, but I can’t immediately find it on their website.
