Final Day for Speaker Submissions

by Darren Barefoot ()

Just a quick reminder that today is the last day for speaker submissions. As such, they've been coming in fast and furious. If you're desperate to submit, but don't have the time to do so today, feel free to email us and we'll grant you a brief reprieve.

We're accepting pitches for presentations and discussion panels. Check out the possible topics, and then submit using this form.

Blog Business Summit: January 24 - 25, 2005, Seattle, WA, USA

by Boris Mann ()

BBS 2005 is happening just a few weeks before Northern Voice, and only a couple of hours drive south. The pricing is definitely for a corporate style event -- almost $800US. But, if you write frequently on business blogging topics, the registration page has a form to apply for a discount.

Here's what the organizers have to say about the event:

This event will show you how your business can leverage current real-world blogging techniques, tools and platforms to promote and enhance your ventures.

The summit will be the gathering place for hundreds of entrepreneurs, marketing professionals, and current bloggers who want to leverage the latest in Web publishing tools and technologies.

We haven't figured out the new model of the conference

by Boris Mann ()

Ted Shelton has good comments on the current Web 2.0 conference:

What has Web 2.0 done right? Unfortunately for the future of
conferences, they have returned to the model of the past -- key speakers or panels, narrowly focused on specific topics, and speaking TO the attendees not WITH the attendees. Now, the fact is that this model works and we haven't figured out the new model of the conference.

I think we're going to be striking a balance between the two models. Many of the attendees and speakers we've heard are coming will make this conference -- we just happen to be providing a venue and a bit of structure.

Flash Banner for Conference

by Darren Barefoot ()

In my entire life, I've built exactly three things in Macromedia Flash. Happily, there's usually no shortage of experts to turn to when you need the Flash magic. However, we're organizing a non-profit blogging conference here, so there's no coin for expensive turtleneck-wearing, horn-rim glasses-wearing uber-designers. I built the following Flash banner for our kind sponsors and partners who are keen to spread the good Northern Voice mojo.
