Google issues “gag order” on bloggers at event

This article from CNET is interesting for two reasons. First, Google is inviting 400 people, including bloggers and journalists, to an “off the record” partner forum. In other words, Google is prohibiting participants from writing about the event “To ensure that our presenters and attendees can speak openly”. I wouldn’t exactly call information that is uttered in front of a 400-headed crowd “a well kept secret”.

Second, CNET is apparently updating its articles “blogging style”, by using strike through on “deleted” text (see the bottom of the article).
