1. There are many smart and interesting people here, with lots and lots of laptops. 2. All the laptops have made us exceeded our wi-fi bandwidth, so access is spotty. 3. Dave Winer is excited about the future of OPML, which is about sharing information in outline form. 4. Microsoft is building RSS into Longhorn in a big way. Also, they are using a Creative Commons license. 5. The Hive bees just made us laugh with their mock presentation. 6. I really wish we had better web access. Tags:... Continue Reading

Tracking GnomeDex

The GnomeDex festivities have begun. The BBQ is still on this afternoon and I’m really curious about who is going to show up. I have a feeling GnomeDex is going to be one of the most tagged, blogged, flickred events ever. Thankfully, Kris Krug has created a SuperFeed for the event. Basically, it is a single RSS feed that brings together Gnomedex-related posts from these sources: The GnomeDex Wiki Gnomedex Blog Flickr Del.icio.us Feedster EVDB Technorati Tags Pubsub This is the feed: http...

IE 7 At GnomeDex

I guess it's OK to talk about it without Chris kicking our ass now. Dave Winer has posted some that Microsoft is going to show off IE 7 at GnomeDex on Friday. I've also heard that there may be tablet-based demos too, but I'm not 100% on that. On Friday you'll see how deeply integrated RSS is in the architecture of the browser. But that's just the tip of what may turn out to be a very big iceberg. The people at Microsoft noticed something that I had seen, only peripherally -- that there were... Continue Reading

I just registered for Web Visions 2005, which is a one-day conference on the future of the web. It's cheap (under $100), packed with great content (Keynote: Stewart Butterfield) and partly run by one of my good friends Nick Finck of Digital Web Magazine. The early-bird discount ends on June 30th, so get going.

Come to Seattle for GnomeDex 5.0 June 23-25

I just registered for GnomeDex 5.0 - Chris Pirillo's annual technology conference. I've never been before, but Chris is a Seattle guy now so it's good timing. It's shaping up to be a great event and I'm especially happy to see it happening in my own back yard - at the same facility as the Blog Business Summit- Bell Harbor Convention Center. I asked Chris once why he moved to Seattle and all he said was "because it was the best place." I agree.

SXSW Jealousy

Nick Finck put together a great little short film about SXSW. Makes me feel like I was there, without actually talking to or meeting anyone I respect and admire. How sad. Maybe next year. Watch it: What's the Word?

Live Events With Online Chat

Comments

I’ve been to a few events this year that all had something in common: online chat during the presentations or discussions. Usually it was done with IRC, which allows anyone with an Internet connection and the technical ability to join in the chat. I’ve been thinking about my experiences lately and how it affects my attention. I have mixed feelings overall. The chat creates a second place for me to spend my attention at the event and I’d say that if I split my attention between the... Continue Reading

The TechMuck as an Event

I'm taking a lot from this event (Tech Muckabout) but one thing that is clear is how difficult it must be to plan and manage such an event. The "Muckahosts" have done a great job in creating an event that, by design, is not like any "conference" you've ever been too. I laud them for doing a great job in a new and difficult environment. Unlike a conference of accountants or lawyers, this groups varies widely in expertise, domain, focus, experience, etc. There are people like Amy Jo Kim and... Continue Reading

n-Tags and Revolting Conference Attendees

Jason Kottke just posted a funny and interesting entry about interactive name tags (nTags) at the recent Pop!Tech conference. The nTags are little computers that allow you to zap your personal information to another person's tag with whom you're conversing. Pretty cool, but some people didn't like it... Many attendees liked them and used them happily, but others revolted. Some people started trading their badges with others. Early on during the conference, Whit Diffie hacked his nTag badge to...

Passing Virtual Notes in Class: Backchannels and Conference Presentations

There has been some recent discussion about new ways people are interacting at conferences. The New York Times "In the Lecture Hall, A Geek Chorus" and Ross Mayfield got some of the discussion started and Clay Shirky followed up with some good points. Here's a quick introduction from my perspective: It's a little like passing notes in class- except via the Internet. Wireless Internet connections at conferences and lectures are allowing people to use laptops and other tools to communicate in... Continue Reading
