The Future of Web Apps Conference
I’ve just signed up for The Future of Web Apps , Carson Workshops‘ conference which is now in its second year. The line-up looks excellent with a few things definitely relevant to my new project, particularly Bradley Horowitz talking about social interaction, Tara Hunt on building online communities and Kevin Rose on the future of crowd generated media. Tara’s also doing a workshop on community building which should be interesting.
Ryan (Carson) always manages to get a fantastic speaker list at his events such as Mike Arrington from TechCrunch, Rasmus Lardorf (creator of PHP) and Kevin Rose of Digg fame. Ryan’s LinkedIn connections profile reads like a who’s who of web 2.0 – including Tim O’Reilly. Running the Vitamin website must help – they have some fantastic contributors.
After you register they have quite a neat ‘social app’ which lets you connect view and with other attendees, so you can do a bit of networking at the event. People attending include the founders of crowdstorm.com, firebox.com, wordtracker.com and putplace.com to name a few.
See you there on Jan 20th!
