WebGuild Annual Conference – Ram Schriram Keynote

It was billed as an alternative to O’Reilly’s upcoming Web 2.0 conference in San Francisco. Was it? No. Was it related to Web 2.0? Not really. Was it still useful? Yes. Bambi Francisco and Roland Vogl, Esg. For a “Web 2.0” event however, it had a completely different group than I’m used to seeing. It seemed to mash veteran Silicon Valley professionals with up-and-coming Web 2.0 entrepreneurs. But, that’s OK. It was still, for all intensive purposes, a valuable event;…

Blogger Relations – Forward Features My Latest Chapter in the Series

The latest installment of “Blogger Relations” has run over at Forward. Thanks to Erin Caldwell for publishing each chapter. The previous article discussed, “Reaching the Blogosphere – Finding Bloggers in Your Market” using tools such as Technorati, Sphere, Google’s BlogSearch, Blogpulse, Alexa, CyberAlert, BuzzMetrics, Cymfony, and Umbria. The new article explores how to identify the right bloggers for your market and how to best reach them and why they should even receive your news in the first place. Please vote…

October 2006 SF Beta Web 2.0 Mixer

Photo Credit: Beau Liening Grab a bottle of bubbles at your local Longs or RiteAid, get outside and commence blowing. Try to make one very big bubble, gander, marvel at its size, call all of your friends to see it, and then, pop. Pop? That’s so 1.0. Now, do it again…but, be careful…don’t let this one pop. Instead of filling it with air, try injecting a bit of hope and enthusiasm into each blow. Nice work….I can see the beginnings…

New Topic Idea for Web2point2

Since Chris Heuer, host and event organizer of 2point2, has requested that participants write blog posts to facilitate topics for the board to consider as topics for the Main Talks or the “How To” sessions, I thought I’d keep the ideas flowing. I’d like to see a discussion of new opportunities for Tags outside of Technorati. Greg Narain of BlueWhale Labs and Social Roots and I were speaking about the idea of Tag Beacons recently during the Webguild Web 2.0…

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 Jose Mercury News to Lay off 101 Workers

Hat tip over to Nick Douglas atValleyWag. Not that I want to start reporting about every media outlet that lays off reporters…but I do want to highlight the inevitable reality and need for publishers to redefine their business models immediately. There have been many flags along the way, with the most recent being the break-away of Silicon Beat’s Matt Marshall to startVentureBeat andMike Langberg’s decisionto leave journalism (after 18 years at the Merc) to join The TDA Group, a marketing…

This Thursday, WebGuild’s Annual Conference – Web 2.0, The New Web

I’m going through my calendar of upcoming events, and it looks like I’ll have time to make it to the WebGuild 2006 Annual Conference: Web 2.0 – The New Web. Since I am not invited to O’Reily’s Web 2.0 conference (like the rest of us), I’ve decided to attend the WebGuild event, especially since much of the content and speaker line-up is similar – not to mention the vast contrast in price, $239 compared to roughly $3,200. This event is…

Office2.0 version 1.5, Additional Insight from Day One

The other day, I was reading Read/Write Web before heading up to Office 2.0 and Richard McManus posted some great questions to stimulate dialogue and create a forum for truly interesting market and technology analysis. Does Office 2.0 represent a revolution, a paradigm shift? Or just incremental improvement on Microsoft Office? What Office 2.0 apps and services best represent the paradigm shift of Office 2.0 to you? Do you agree that Google’s web-based office apps are more evolutionary than revolutionary?…
