Plenty of people are excited about the future of 3D printing, but not many events are solely dedicated to the technology. Sure, there’s the Maker Faire and Euromold, but those events cover much more than just 3D printing. That’s all going to change in April. WebMediaBrands announced that its hosting the inaugural Inside 3D Printing Conference and Expo in New …
Until now, GameStop’s annual EXPO conference has been exclusively for GameStop employees. Today, GameStop has announced it is opening up the conference to a wider audience. Members of GameStop’s PowerUp Rewards program are invited to attend the conference, which will be be held in San Antonio, Texas on August 29. EXPO will feature pre-release video game demos and previews, contests, …
In a session called “The Cult of Blogging,” the sect turned out to be a little smaller than expected; out of three scheduled speakers, only one managed to show up.
Om Malik gets a pass – the poor fellow apparently threw his back out – but Michael Arrington simply forgot to come, leaving us with Leo Laporte and surprise guest Justine Ezarik.
By writing a blog, you get to air your thoughts and feelings, converse with intelligent people in the comments section, and do all other sorts of nice things. Yet what’s really nice is making money, and blog syndication can give you the best of both worlds.
The New Media is so, well, new, success within it – taking your idea from the computer screen to the Big Dance that is Old Media – brings throngs of listeners eager to hear how you did it, and how they can do it, too.
Rafe Needleman, Josh Lowensohn, and Erica Ogg rated their five most favorite things for CNET, from the Web 2.0 Expo.
One of the most interesting sessions to me at Web 2.0 Expo was fellow analytics blogger Avinash Kaushik’s session called “Click the Big Red Button : Tips & Techniques for Optimizing Conversion and A/B Testing”. I was looking forward to it because even though I’ve been big into testing for years, I still feel like the majority of the web world is so far away from embracing testing to improve web results.
Yesterday at Web 2.0 Expo one of the main keynote sessions was the “Built to Last” Panel which consisted of John Battelle asking various questions to a few entrepreneurs who have built companies that have sold or were worth selling. The participants in the session:
John Battelle interviewed Google CEO Eric Schmidt at the Web 2.0 Expo keynote Tuesday morning. Here are the highlights and my commentary:
A popular and very funny session today was the session entitled “Venture Capital 2.0: Bright Future or Broken Forever?”. This session was moderated by Mike Arrington of Techcrunch who is a former VC himself and current angel investor. It appeared like it could be boring listen to a bunch of venture capitalists talk, but Arrington did a very nice job spicing it up with well-timed insults and jokes.
I recently read a insightful piece from Ben Hunt about the future of the web2.0 social experience. It was particularly relevant as I am heading to the Web2.0 Expo here in San Francisco today and will have a chance to see many new technologies later this evening at the "Booth Crawl" event at the opening of the Expo.
People felt left out of Web 2.0 in past events because of the cost of attending such a high-powered professionally produced program. Similar to how some people felt left out from FooCamp by not being invited, but channeled their energies positively to create Barcamp with an open door principle.
The expo is at the Moscone West in San Francisco from April 15 – 18. Whatever your definition of Web 2.0 is, looking at some of the high profile exhibitors from Adobe and AOL to Zoho and everyone else in between, It is worth taking note of. The expo is co-sponsored by O’Reilly Media and CMP Technololgy.
Well, that’s a better title than “Sunning Your Yahoo At the Dance” right? On to business. Yahoo is adding two new channels to its video platform: the Sundance Channel for the latest outrage over creepy Dakota Fanning scenes; and Expo TV, a consumer-generated product review channel featuring “videopinions.”
The evening keynote at SES Chicago by the person most readily identified with the conference series, Danny Sullivan, looked at the future of search. WebProNews’ Chris Richardson frantically typed notes while a balky laptop battery ticked down to zero.
The ballroom was standing room only at the Podcast and Portable Media Expo, the crowd was electric waiting to hear from two of their idols; first TWiT host Leo Laporte, and topped off with the executive producer of Battlestar Galactica, Ron Moore, who would speak of being called a “podcasting pioneer,” how it started and why he loves it.
Robert Trencheny, the president and CEO of the Teen Podcasters Network, is the dutiful custodian of a startup company he acquired from a friend of his from his junior high days. Only he doesn’t go by Robert, he goes by Robbie, and the junior high friend is still in junior high. Robbie is only 14 years old.
Andrew Baron of Rocketboom fame may have sealed his position as an advertising visionary. His approach, detailed during a keynote address at the Podcast and Portable Media Expo, had everyone buzzing. A $20,000 discount for likeable commercials? Disney should shoot for an audience of 10,000?
“This is really the holy grail,” said Patrice Curtis, of Curtis Research Group to a nearly empty room at the Podcast Metrics session of the Podcast and Portable Media Expo. “Everyone should be in this room.” Maybe everyone was at the Turning Passion Into Profits, or Marketing’s New Change-Agent.
The first day of the Podcast and Portable Media Expo in Ontario, Calif., kicks off today with an all-star lineup of speakers and experts on the new media form of podcasting. WebProNews made the 2,100-mile trek to glean all we can from this emergent medium.
Microsoft and AdMission have announced a development that may greatly benefit advertisers who use Windows Live Expo’s free classifieds.
