Tim Post, Widget enthusiast extraordinare, is now also spreading the word. I am just waiting for Steve Rubel, Fred Wilson, and Mike Arrington to start chatting on it. I am excited to help in any way to make this event a success. Should be good times.
For those of you that have had your head in the sand, you should definitely check out emerging discussions on WidgetCon – the conference on Widgets! See below for the play-by-play on the evolving story. If this event happens – which looks likely given the demand – the historical evolution of the conference will be something interesting to remember. It is definitely growing in a manner that is consistent with the collective participation theme that pervades the Web 2.0 movement.
Dare puts out interest in a Widget Conference in a P.S. statement posted on a rather loaded post on the nature of Web 2.0 Conferences
Om kindly volunteers to host Dare and others at an informal event. Seth from Meebo and a bunch of others (including Clearspring) volunteer to throw in some help.
The man with his ear to the ground, Marc C, starts to get the word out (he is good at that).
