It wasn't just my imagination, SPX was more crowded this year. Chris Mautner has a nice write up of this year's SPX, (although I'm not sure I qualify for inclusion among "respected online personalities"). Also check out this year's Nerdlinger awards. It's too bad they're in Baltimore - Baltimore is a long ways from Bethesda! Maybe next year someone will organize a cool pre-SPX event closer to SPX!
Really nice tutorial over at Webcomics.com today - from script to finished panels.

Daily Cartoonist has an update on the 250 people making it as quarterfinalists for the Amazon Comic Superstar contest. There are a lot of strips on that list -- at least some of them seem to be on the web already. There's a couple more rounds of winnowing before the final 10 are chosen on October 28th. The winner will be chosen by a vote of Amazon customers

Howard Taylor of Schlock Mercenary and successful transition from Corporate 500 world to full time webcomic-ing popped up in the comments to the FLEEN thread on the recent Comics Success Seminar in Las Vegas (you'll recall I commented on host Alan Gardner's What Happens in Vegas Stays in Vegas, especially since attendees paid to attend). Interesting stuff - also read Howard's post here and hopefully Gary takes Howard up on the interview offer.
