Web 2point2 – The Point is Still People

O’Reilly’s Web 2.0 conference will be in town and it will completely fly over the heads of those who are truly behind the new web and the real source behind the percolating enthusiasm in the Valley.

Chris Heuer saw the opportunity to create an annual event specifically for those people who are already looking beyond “web 2.0.” Based on last year’s successful Web 2.1 “un conference,” this year’s Web 2.2 event will be held on November 9th and 10th in San Francisco at 1 Market Street in San Francisco.

Heuer is inviting guests to spend two days of sharing and learning new trends and technologies to build the next set of applications and services that will define the new web landscape. Instead of paying $1-2k at other two point oh conferences, Web 2.2 is a bargain at $32.95, which includes a kick-off party pass at Fluid.

Web 2point2 is an ‘unconference’ that is driven by participants and based on conversations, not powerpoints. It is run as a project of BrainJams, Inc. a California Non Profit organization that is also organizing Social Media Club http://www.socialmediaclub.org/.

The people who will be in attendance are the influentials of the Blogosphere and Web 2.0 movement who are in the trenches doing the real work, starting up new companies and sharing their understanding of what they learn through Social Media such as blogs, vlogs and podcasts. In short, the crowd will be largely made up of peers and contemporaries in the resurgence of the Web.
