Web 2.0 Expo: Impressions from San FranciscoPosted by Chris Loonan in Events, Market Insights , April 7th, 2009
We had a great time at the Web 2.0 Expo in San Francisco, met many interesting people and learned quite a lot from the conference. Giving you a recap of all the sessions we attended would probably fill a whole book, so we just wanted to point you to the site where most of the speakers share their presentations for all those who didn’t have a chance to be there. We also took some pictures of the zanox team, our booth and a little San Francisco sightseeing tour. Check them out here:
I attended several sessions and found the following ones most valuable: Ryan Sarver talked about “W3C Geolocation API – Adding ‘Where’ to Web Applications“and showed us how important location information will be for the future developments of apps. In “Best Practices in Social Media Integration for Web Publishers and Content Providers” Bob Buch, VP of business development for Digg, pointed out the essential ingredients for social media integration. Tara Hunt explained how to have a good community presence during her session “The Whuffie Factor: The 5 keys for Maxing Social Capital and Winning with Online Communities” and I learned a lot from Jyri Engestrom, talking about “Building Sites Around Social Objects”. All in all, it was a great event and we are already looking forward to next year!
