Niall Kennedy has a blog post entitled Widgets Live! conference in San Francisco on November 6 where he writes
The first ever conference dedicated to widgets, gadgets, and modules
will take place on Monday, November 6, in San Francisco. The one-day
conference will capture and summarize the emerging widget economy and
allow developers, business leaders, and content producers to
collaborate and better understand how they might participate in
syndication at the edge of the network.
A small web loosely joined.
I am organizing a conference named Widgets Live! next month in partnership with Om Malik
to capture the emerging webspace of widgets. There's so much happening
in the fast-moving widget space right now it's a bit difficult to keep
track of it all....There is so much activity in the customizable web powered by widgets we
felt it was time to bring together the major players for a one-day
industry overview and tutorial. We hope you can join us.
Tickets are only $100 and available now.
I've been talking to folks at work about this conference since Om Malik responded to my blog post about having a get together to talk about
gadgets widgets. So far it looks like Microsoft folks from Live.com, Windows Live Spaces, Windows Live Gallery and the Windows Vista sidebar should in the house. The conference will be during the same week and in the same city as the O'Reilly Web 2.0 which has worked out perfectly for fitting people's schedules over here. Well, except for the folks who will be going to TechEd Europe.
Be there or be square . :)
