To my fellow geeks hitting up WidgetCon that are interested in chatting, ping me via comment/email/fb/ms/im/cell/office/fax (whatever you got). I am speaking there with some pretty cool folks. For those of you that do not have the scoop about this dope-as-a-rope conference here is the dish from our amigos at Freewebs:
WidgetCon is a full day event to be held at the Tribeca Cinemas in New York on July 11th. Its objective is to begin to look towards the smart growth of widget marketing, through conversations on everything from standards to metrics to production and economics, as well as creative and media strategies.
This is making out to be an interesting event and will be the second official Widget-only conference ever. The first was Widgets Live held last year. That event grew out of organic blog commentary and was a smashing success.
The speaker list is below. There was one speaker recently added to this list. Our friend Linda Abraham, EVP Comscore, is joining the panel. You heard it here first! Congrats to Linda and team on the IPO – we are psyched to celebrate. 🙂
