I'll be blogging before, during and after Web 2.0 Expo [March 31 – April 3, San Francisco's Moscone Center] about what's coming, what I see and what I conclude from the sessions and the encounters with other attendees. I've attended the past couple of years, but this year, I'm one of the group of bloggers that will offer news and information about the experience.
This is an affordable conference for technologists and those of us who work with and for them — and there are attendance options that fit any budget or priorities. One of the best aspects of the gathering is the people you meet. From veterans to new faces, you have the opportunity to learn what's working and what they see coming. I think this year will be interesting not just for the industry access but because for many attendees, it will be the first time you get to see how the tech industry keeps plugging in a down economy. Innovators in all sectors of the industry will show us why we can't afford to lose heart or creativity.
Here are some places to visit for more information.
