Web 2point2 Sponsors???

I have talked with several of y’all about sponsoring and/or attending the upcoming Web 2point2 unconference (tag is web22 btw) happening on November 9 and 10, so now is the time to do something about it.  If you are still interested in sponsoring, please send me a note and a logo to one of my email addresses so I can include your support in the launched version of the site which I will most definitely be completing on Sunday.

You can also register for $32.95 (plus a small service charge) which includes a t-shirt, 2 lunches and access to the Web 2point2 Release Party, which will be a blowout on Thursday night November 9. Special thanks to Dave Winer who unbeknownst to me was on an email thread circulated by the lovely Miss Grace and who blogged about it on Scripting News, also becoming the first paying participant.  Nice.

His quote was perfect, embodying the true spirit of the event

“Like all the cool kids, I’ll be at Web 2.2, November 9-10 in San Francisco. Like the web, it’s open to everyone”

More details coming very soon, but please do know that space is limited, nothing I can do about physics…

From the Florida road update…

I had hoped to be writing a lot more here and on the Social Media Club site, but being in the real world with so many wonderful people has really made it difficult to do so. Today I have been helping my best friend with his business, Trust Event Solutions, as he tries to make some important improvements in the way his company operates as well as 3 of my other clients, which I will be writing about separately. (1 is at DEMO today, so I am really bummed to not be there with them, but glad I can really start talking about the cool things they are doing once their pitch is over)

BlogOrlando_DisneyWorld - 59.jpgWell, gramps and I had a great time hanging out with our good friends from Blog Orlando on Saturday at Disney World. There is an entire set of photos I took of Disney World on Flickr – and another set of photos of the Blog Orlando conference. The greatest one for me personally though was this one of my grandfather. All day long I was concerned about him not having any real fun because even I found some of my favorite rides pretty boring now as an adult, but I was wrong as you can tell from this photo on hte Jungle Cruise that was taken late in the day. He was really smiling like that throughout most of the day, but I did not really notice until I was editing the photos last night because I was so concerned.

Josh Hallet did a great job organizing the BlogOrlando event and it seemed that everyone left having learned something and having made some new friendships. I certainly did and have much more to say about finally meeting Andrea Weckerle and David Parmet, who are both extremely insightful communications professionals who ‘get it’ and have a lot to share. Of course, I also got to hang out with Josh, Dave Coustan, Jeremey Harrington, Vlad Mazek, Andrew Odom, Mark Jaquith, Judson Collier and Disney expert John Frost (who gave us some great insider stories as we toured the kingdom on Saturday). I was also psyched to meet Tommy Duncan from Sticks of Fire, John from the Orlando Sentinnel and Gavin Hall from Emurse, but did not get enough time to really get to know them.

Tonight we are having our first Social Media Club meeting in Miami, with much thanks to Jason Baptiste of The Web Log Wire for hosting and helping organize the conversation. Since I need to leave shortly to get down to Coral Gables before traffic gets bad this afternoon, I need to cut this short and tell you the rest of the stories at another time. So much has happened that I have not written about, I am very excited to share these stories with you…


Chris Heuer Speaks: Web 2.1, A BrainJam for the Rest of Us

Chris Heuer spoke at and co-organized the unconference Web 2.1 in October, 2005. The event is a half day unConference and networking event for discussing what Web 2.0 is, what it’s missing and what we want from Web 2.1. Chris served as an event organizer and speaker at this inaugural event.

A BrainJam is a new type of event (inspired by BarCamp, Gnomedex, TechCrunch BBQ and WebZine2005) that brings people from diverse backgrounds together to focus on a few key questions, sharing knowledge, collaborating, solving problems, demonstrating cool tools, networking and hopefully making the world a better place while having fun.
