Here’s the money quote:
At least half the audience multi-tasked on laptops, iPhones and BlackBerrys while listening to speakers. And many contributed comments in the form of Twitter “tweets” that were constantly scrolling up a screen behind the podium. In addition to those in attendance in Claremont, organizers said about 1,300 people watched a streaming video feed of the conference from around the world.
Oh, and this:
The consensus [of the conference]: It’s a whole new world out there. Churches will ignore it at their peril.
