Hurry up and Vote!

July 13th, 2008 5 Comments

Voting for suggested sessions for OpenWorld in September ends today over on Mix.

I can’t tell you exactly what time it will end. Being Sunday and all, Rich is probably busy having a weekend, but it will end today.

If you haven’t voted yet, head over and browse the list of sessions. Participation has been outstanding; we’ve had nearly 300 session ideas proposed and several thousand votes cast.

If you proposed a session, this is your final chance to promote before the voting ends. Several people were doing that last week, and their efforts have paid off, moving some sessions up the list, e.g. there’s a new number one.

I still don’t have an official word on the number of sessions that will make the cut, but I’ve heard the number will be somewhere between 25-35. The numbers are fuzzy because the Events team is expecting that not all the top vote getters will respond and be able to present.

So, if you have an idea in or near the top 20, get your agenda and content ready for the big dog and pony show because you’ll want to be prepared and polished when you get the call, figuratively speaking. In reality, it’ll probably be an email.

Anyway, brush off your A game. Everyone else, head over to Mix and join this unique opportunity. Have a voice in what sessions make the cut for OpenWorld.

If you wondering, OpenWorld is September 21-25 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. Register here, early bird rates end on July 18, or if you’re a blogger and you want to attend cover this huge conference, follow the process listed here.

Update: Voting has ended. Head over to Mix to view the greatest session ideas.

Update 7/14/08: The official word is here.

Sessions are now being carefully evaluated and winners will be announced on July 21.

    The blogging one I am suggesting would be more fun for me to present though :(
