Off to San Francisco… *thaaaaaaaaaanks*

21 04 2008

OK… well not everyone will have seen the South Park episode necessary to find humour in my title… but I’m off to San Fran for the first time this week, planning to give lots of Web 2.0 Expo-sure. My previous company, TSOT, Inc. is sending me along for the ride, and since I have not yet had the opportunity to attend any O’Reilly events, Web 2.0 seems like a good place to start!

Before all my ‘hardcore’ nerd friends chime in with their two cents, I realize that by naming it ‘Web 2.0’ the conference is going to see a lot of upturned noses and smugness – maybe that’s why it’s in San Fran ? (haha South Park again) However I’m going to try and leverage my way into some interesting conversations and fun parties at the event. It’s always good to see what the general business community thinks of web 2.0 technologies, especially when it comes to implementation; this conference is probably the one place where I can chat without being completely overshadowed by tech gurus… *crossed fingers* 🙂

 

Anyway, for those of you who attend the Ruby on Rails Project Night in Toronto, I’ll be trying to drum up some interest for our event as well. I’ve already spoken to a few Rails design houses who are interested in getting involved both as sponsors and as presenters – don’t forget to direct interest my way: corecorina@hotmail.com or corina.newby@tsotinc.com – so far things are looking good for May and June!

 

A bit of a boring post just to give an update… LOTS more to come once I arrive in the Bay! Not being much of a flower girl… I’ll just show up with my laptop/ipod/blackberry in hand.
