So just to be in the spirit of Web 1.0 happening on the first day of Web 2.0 we have Web 2.1: A BrainJam for the rest of us” happening on the last day. They even have a wiki 🙂
Web 1.0 and 2.0 this week
So I have been off and about the world for a few weeks. I am finally back in the bay area and trying to recover from the nasty cold that I caught while at Accelerating Change. I had a great week at Web of Change except I was fighting the cold. I had more great meetings about the forthcoming global launch of i-names services this week in Palo Alto.
Next week will be a big week. I am going to be at Web 2.0 and just found out about the ‘alternative summit’ Web 1.0 happening simultaneously.
On Wednesday at the House of Shields and sponsored by 43 Folders and the year 1998, with generous contributions from Adaptive Path, Mule Design, WordPress, Blogger, and Flickr.
We will meet to discuss line breaks, spacer gifs, and the ability to launch links in a new browser window.
There will be beer.
Let’s make this summit more successful than the last one, please.
This is an interesting trend the creation of grass roots summits occurring as a counter point (FOO and BAR Camp) and open source alternative to giant corporate walled gardens talking about the future.
