This week: The Art of Start and Launch: Silicon Valley

My friend Zoli Erdos let me know about two important events coming up this week. On November 8, 2006, make plans to attend The Art of Start and Launch Silicon Valley produced by SVASE and Garage.com.

The Art of the Start is a conference dedicated to helping entrepreneurs succeed. It runs from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Web 2.0 “Bubble Free” Bar Crawl in San Francisco on Nov. 10th.

Bubble-Free Web 2.0 Bar Crawl

My good friend Greg Narain and I are hosting a “network free” and “bubble free” bar crawl in San Francisco on 11/10.

The Crawl will take place on November 10th, 2006 at 6pm.

Here are the details:

The Bubble-Free Bar Crawl is a celebration of our sacrifice. This event is for everyone toiling late at night to launch their own startup and take a piece of the pie. Most importantly, it’s a time for you to bring all those who are supporting you out for a good time and a thank you.

Web 2.3 and Beyond, What’s Really Next?

Chris Heuer, host and event organizer of Web 2point2, has requested that participants write blog posts to facilitate topics for the board to consider for the Main Talks or the “How To” sessions. Here’s another idea:

As more and more events spring up and parties become the new business mixers, we can’t help but scream, “the bubble is back.”

Tags, Tag Beacons, Naming Conventions

Since Chris Heuer, host and event organizer of Web 2point2, has requested that participants write blog posts to facilitate topics for the board to consider 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 event and how they could benefit conference organizers during pre- and post- show blogosphere coverage.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
