Sarah Milstein, from the O'Reilly Media, has extended to anyone from my Stanford class or colleagues an invitation to participate in the Web 2.0Open part of the Web 2.0 Expo this year. The Web 2.0 is an "unconference where the event and topics are determined by those who attend. Its emphasis is participation over presentation where participants can connect with others to discuss issues related to Web 2., ask and answer questions. The free session will be held on April 1 and 2, 2009 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. If you have never attended an unconference or are simply interested in participating, I highly recommend it. See information below:
To register, use the code websf09opn for a free pass that
will give you access to Web2Open, Hybrid Sessions, Keynotes, Sponsored
Sessions, the Expo Hall, and BoFs
If you'd like to attend the full Expo, the conference is offering 35% off to friends and colleagues of speakers Sarah is speaking about Twitter for business on April 1).
Use this code when you register: websf09spr35. Alternatively, if you'd like free passes for a main
conference session or two on either Weds or Thurs, you can volunteer at the Open for a little more than hour, and Sarah can give you passes; shoot her an email for that email@example.com.
