Web 2.0 Summit – Did it make the sale?

Sure the Summit (SFO, Oct 17 -19) was sold out. I would have loved to be there, but living in the other corner of US makes it difficult to participate in the excitement. It might have been really refreshing to see Mark Zuckerberg, wearing jeans and his signature sandals.  Zuckerberg had informed attendees that he expected the number of workers at Facebook to increase to 700 in a year from the more than 300 employees today.

The line-up of speakers was indeed very impressive: Meg Whitman (eBay), Steve Ballmer, Rupert Murdoch, Stewart Butterfield (Flickr) and more – the complete list here

Any how, Ii am hoping to catch some of the happenings on pod-casts and screen-casts. I am sure you-tube will have a few pretty soon. Here is one that covers the last years (2006) Opening Session. Please post any links you have in the comments.

I hope that many investors walked out of the event with a commitment to support web 2.0 initiatives further. All the software makers and start-up entrepreneurs owe one for Oreilly for coining the terminology and nurturing the concept of web 2.0.
