You could learn a lot from a #badabing hashtag. If you search that on Twitter, you’ll find all kinds of tweets from those in attendance at Microsoft’s Bing Search Summit.
It is interesting to see some of the things people are talking about with regards to Bing, and as the search engine is still in its infancy, everybody wants to know all they can. If you dont’ feel like wading through tons and tons of tweets, relax. I’ve done it for you (although I’m sure there will be plenty more since the time of this writing).

Organizing an emerging search marketing conference series is difficult. Beyond the choice of topics and speakers, there are a range of structural and financial issues to be worked through, public relations to be conducted and marketing efforts to be undertaken. Competing with a growing number of other conferences, gatherings and seminars, new search marketing shows have to climb a slope steeper than most.
As many of you already know, last year Danny Sullivan and Chris Sherman kicked off the Search Marketing Expo (SMX).
The conference series started with SMX Advanced in Seattle and it was a hit. Compared to most conferences, people actually came away learning new information as well as actually being happy with conference food for the first time (no more boxed lunches).
