Blodget Huffington DavosThe main activity in Davos: Bloviating.

Two years ago, when the folks at the World Economic Forum first invited me to Davos, I began writing a series called “The Truth About Davos.”The goal of the series was to convey what the conference is actually like, instead of just reporting news or regurgitating marketing speak.

This “truth about Davos,” I suspected, was not necessarily going to be negative–it was just going to be truth (good, bad, funny, silly, sad, ironic, whatever).

And that’s what it turned out to be.

At a party last night, someone told me they had enjoyed those articles and asked me to feature them again.

So here’s a selection…
