as promised in my last sponsorship request i am back at it, and this time your humble blogmaster enlists your support to send him to the Web 2.0 Expo 2007, April 15-18, 2007 in San Francisco, California. this conference is being put on by no less than tim o’reilly, one of the seminal influences behind the movement to make sense out of the creative explosion that is web 2.0. in his own words:
“Web 2.0 is one of the big ideas that’s shaping the industry right now. But every big idea needs implementation. We saw the need for a second event that focuses on how to actually build effective Web 2.0 applications.” —Tim O’Reilly, Founder and CEO, O’Reilly Media
being largely devoid of shame i entreat my readers (again) to consider this an investment that will pay dividends in terms of
- name recognition
- competitive advantage
- technological advantage
- political capital
- reduced dependence on fossil fuels (okay, i just threw that in)
and this will positively skyrocket the dcba to the top of the international cool bar association list. oh yes, for the first time i can reveal that a secret list of cool bar associations was entrusted to the knights templar by pope urban II before the first crusade; the list became the centerpirce of secret masonic rituals, was pivotal in the liberation of thousands of mezo-americans from the hands of the conquistadors, hobnobbed with the crwned heads of europe … but i’ve said too much.
in short, if you would like to sponsor my trip to san francisco to attend the conference, participate in the discussion forums, blog live (my goal is to arrange a video or audio podcast if possible) and just generally return with boatloads of contacts, blogging material, and a deeper understanding of the trends that have changed, are changing, and continue to change our hallowed profession, please drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org. any amount of sponsorship is acceptable, from the whole package (conference, room, board) to a small portion. all sponsors get due credit.
and as always, thank you for your support.
