Each day during AIDS 2010, we'll be following tweets, blog entries, and news stories coming out of the conference and posting a daily roundup of some of the most interesting news to hit the Web.
Though the conference's opening session wasn't until 7pm, there was plenty going on at AIDS2010 all day long.
"Who wouldn't want a free hug!"

- Research, research, research. Today saw sessions on HIV transmission, prevention and vaccines.
The Journal of the American Medical Association was there for it all, tweeting highlights and speaker quotes throughout the day.
- Marches, protests and people making their voices heard. It was epic. Sex workers marched under red umbrellas demanding human rights (@PLRI) and HIV/AIDS funding (@AramBarra). Before the conference's opening ceremony, 1,500 activists staged a die-in (@TAGat2010AIDS).
