EVE Online Fanfest 2009 Speedlinking

I'm slowly gathering all the good articles and information that I come across in regards to the EVE Online Fanfest Coverage - articles, facts, photos, blog roundups,etc. I'll keep updating this post as I find new info. If you've written something or are aware of a great article I haven't linked too (and there are plenty of these), then please add them to the comments and I'll add it to the list.

What we've learned so far on:

Ooh. T3 frigates sound nice. Hopefully they'll be more affordable then the cruisers.
