I find myself involved in the organization of three different conferences right now, Blogworld and New Media Expo 2008, the Thin Air Summit and … well, a third event that I’m not quite ready to announce yet. 🙂
Blogworld’s call for speakers has passed, but the new event, the Thin Air Summit, just opened its doors for speaker proposals and I invite you to consider proposing a talk of your own (or a panel!) on a topic of interest to New Media and Web 2.0 folk. The conference will occur over the weekend of November 7-9, 2008 at the facilities of the Art Institute of Colorado.
“The format of The Thin Air Summit is a combination of panels and educational sessions. For the education sessions there are three tracks, text – e.g. blogging, online books and the like, audio – e.g. audio podcasts, podsafe music and video – e.g. video podcasts, live streaming video. These sessions will provide practical information relevant to creating better content in that particular medium. The panels will bring all three tracks together and be focused on new media topics that are relevant to all – both the practical, such as monetization, and the philosophical, such as What is New Media and Why is it Important.
Sound cool? I think it will be a nice event with a savvy audience and it’s a huge bonus that we’ll be hosting it here in Colorado, rather than having to fly to California, New York or some other far distant city! And it’ll prove to be one of the premier new media networking events in Colorado this year too…
