Meet Charlene and Josh at Web 2.0 Expo
By Charlene Li
Josh and I will be at the Web 2.0 Expo this week, with the hope of meeting as many of you as possible! Below is our general schedule, and in between sessions we'll be roaming the halls and show floor. You can track our whereabouts via our Twitter feeds (Charlene and Josh's feeds, respectively).
And if you have a copy of the book, we'll be happy to sign it (it will be on sale on the Expo floor).
Wednesday, April 23rd
9:40am-10:20am, Conference Session, "Creating A Coherent Social Strategy For Business", Room 2022.
Both of us will be presenting key frameworks from the "Groundswell" book, as well as how technology and business people can and need to work together to create a strategy. You technically need a Conference Pass to see the session, but O'Reilly is including our session as part of Web2Open, meaning that if you have that pass (which is FREE) you can attend our session. When you register on site, use the code Websf08opw to get the Web2Open pass.
10:40am-12:00pm, Web2Open Discussion
This is an open discussion forum following our conference session. We'll facilitate discussions around strategies, tactics, and metrics used by companies -- and turn to the people who are active practitioners to join the conversation. Note that you'll need the Web2Open pass to attend this session as well.
4:30pm-5:00pm: Keynote: "A Conversation With Max Levchin"
Charlene will be running the kickoff Q&A session with Max Levchin, CEO of Slide. If you have any burning questions you'd like to see her ask Max, please add them to the comments or email them to cli at forrester dot com.
9pm onwards: Meet up at Restaurant Lulu, 816 Folsom @ 4th Street
Come meet us for no-host drinks at the bar of this great restaurant.
Thursday, April 24th and Friday, April 25th
Josh will be around Thursday morning before heading back to Boston.
I will be doing some real-time research on two topics: widget marketing and the future of social networks. If you have anything to add to these two research areas, please let me know. Two sessions I'm looking forward to are "Open Platforms" with David Recordan from Six Apart, and "Widgets Grow Up" with Alex Bard (Goowy Media), Tariq Krim (NetVibes), and Hooman Radfar (Clearspring).
Hope to see and meet many of you later this week!
