Web 2.0 Expo: Come to Learn

Web 2.0 ExpoMy buddy Dave McClure is one of the co-chairs for the Web 2.0 Expo being held out in San Francisco April 15th – 18th and let me tell you he and the rest of the team have spent a lot of time over the last six months lining up great speakers to make sure this conference is top notch.

This conference is about learning how to do Web 2.0, not just hearing people talk about what it is, which is why I am a big fan. They have seven education tracks for geeks, designers, entrepreneurs and all the other types of folks that have a hand in building the next version of the Web.

The cost is always a concern so it’s good to know that there are discounts for students, educators, etc. There is even a free track for those of us who can’t afford anything but want to take part in the learning called Web2.Open. That is a nice touch!

Unfortunately you’ve already missed the early bird discount but fear not! If you use this code – webex07mk35 – you’ll get $100 off the conference ticket price. Who ever said TECH cocktail doesn’t hook up its people?

Register today with the TECH cocktail code above and make the Chicago/Midwest contingent of Web 2.0 bigger and badder.

I’ll be there and Frank will too (yeah – I know he’s in DC now but he’s still a native son of Illinois so he’s still part of the Chicago contingent) but I don’t think two people constitute a contingent. Coming out to the Valley would be a great way to show what this area is made of and learn some stuff while we’re at it. Plus there will definitely be beer and cocktails involved at some point and maybe Frank and I will even spring for a round for the Chicago folks. Note I said maybe – if there’s a handful of ya the first round in San Fran is on us – if there’s a ton of people we’ll buy a handful of beers first come, first serve. We’re not made of money afterall. 🙂

If those reasons to attend weren’t enough for you I should note that FeedBurner’s own Don Loeb is speaking and there will no doubt be some FeedBurner schwag floating around for ya. For more on the conference and the different tracks check out Dave’s blog. Hopefully I’ll see you all in San Francisco in a month!

Side note: If you’re going please drop me a line and we’ll make sure to meet-up. Frank is also out there and is even out there this week so you can ping him too if you want to try and meetup.
