Find AppsLab at Web 2.0 Expo Next Week

April 19th, 2008 12 Comments

The whole ‘Lab will be at Web 2.0 Expo next week, April 22-25 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.

That’s the same venue as OpenWorld and pretty every other tech conference. In Denver, Paul riffed that he was sick of going to Moscone for conferences, something to the effect of “it’s getting old”. It is tough if you aren’t staying in the city, but we’ll make it work.

That’s our commitment. We do the hard stuff.

Web 2.0 Expo has its own social network (natch), hosted on CrowdVine. You can do all the usual social network stuff, network, comment, stalk, I mean friend, people you’d “like to meet”.

Plus it has the entire session and activity agenda baked in, so I can tell people what sessions I’m attending or interested in attending, like an advance popularity rating. More stalking possiblities.

Anyway, our profiles are there: Anthony’s, Paul’s, Rich’s, mine. Drop a note in comments if you’ll be there and want to hang out or do something work-related.

I think Oracle is a Platinum Sponsor this year, and there will be a large (20′ by 20′ I’m told) Oracle booth, complete with micro-unconference. Carl (APEX guru), Justin, OracleJulio and Marius will be there among others.

Let us know if you’ll be there. It’s always nice to put a face to an avatar in meat life. Expect sporadic updates next week, as we all juggle the rigors of conference attending.

Oh and Michael, I haven’t forgot your t-shirt request, medium, right? I’ll see what I can do.

    I was mostly joking about the T-shirt. But that doesn’t mean I don’t want one. So yeah, I’m a medium.

    You’re the best.

    This is unfair and ridiculous…we miss all the action and opportunities ( including of-course the t-shirts)such as these while being here in India :(. Is it why they call it the third-world.
    Unfortunate,

    @Michael: Like I said, I’ll see what I can do.

    @Shishir: I agree. You should write a strongly-worded letter to Tim O’Reilly. I think other cities may feel the same way, since most of the tech conferences are in the Bay Area.

    I’ll be going to Moscone later today – nothing to do with tech conferences, it’s a couple of blocks from my place and we take our kids there to play in the playground. Attending conferences there for me is perfect, much better than a hideous commute down the 101 to Oracle HQ.

    I always find it interesting to see the different stereotypes you get wandering around the area for the different conferences. Mac geeks are the easiest to spot, Java One geeks abound too and I expect a big crowd for Web 2.0 Expo, let’s see what a Web 2.0 geek looks like

    Jake, maybe we can grab a beer next week?

    @David: Definitely, beer sounds good. Are you good enough to tell what type of conference is at Moscone just by the attendees wandering around your neighborhood? That would be an interesting trick.
