Program for Thursday

08.11.2007 | Nicole Simon Tomorow morning we start later after the party yesterday ;o)

11:20 will have two sessions: Due to popular demand (again) Rod Beckstrom will hold another session as followup on his keynote and Creative Commons will be represented by Michelle Thorne.

I am still trying to find out if we can do sessions after the keynotes of if everything is closing up. Nonetheless the booth will have space to have a last meet in the sphere ;o)

How to come to web2open and present something

05.11.2007 | Nicole Simon I want to visit the web2open.
If you are coming to the Expo you will be able to find three rooms on the Expo show floor where you can visit different discussions and presentations. If you have your Expo pass, then you can come to the web2open, easy as that. See the Expo site about the web2open for the code and more information.

Follow the twitter feed to get more information during the day.

I would like to present
We have chosen from submissions a list of prechosen sessions which are listed on the wiki. Also there are two more two rooms (one with beamer and one without) where you can present.

If you like to present, you need to come up in the morning and put up your session at the 'administration booth'.

This is a first come first serve basis and it can be any topic. It should be related to the audience you can expect at the expo. So while it is interesting to learn how to make a real tea, this is not the place. I would love to see a huge variety of topics but limit yourself to relevant topic please

A word of warning though:
I have over the last week experienced a lot of very clueless companies who see this as a chance to do a product presentation and a pitch. This is NOT about presenting your product, as tempting and valuable it may seem to you. This is as much about trust as it is about treating the attendees with respect

(If your presentation title already sounds a lot like this, it will be taken down unless you can convince us this is really relevant and interesting to the audience.)

Can you help out at the registration desk?

04.11.2007 | Nicole Simon We do have a little admin / regestration desk on the web2open and it would be great if you could help out! this does not really involve something fancy, it is just about sitting there and perhaps answer small questions and help do the twitter account of w2o.

This would be appreciated if you could spare a time half a day as in before lunch / after keynotes on one of the days.

Please leave a comment here or enter yourself at the wiki if you can help out, thanks!

Updates for web2open

04.11.2007 | Nicole Simon Sorry for the lack of news and I promise I will be able to fill updates today if I get to wifi. Barcamp is great and if you are already in town come to Sankt Oberholz tonight!

And thanks to Twiki for hosting a new working wiki for us as my own server crashed with the Mysql.

If you are coming to the web2open, please use this as well as the crowdvine for the Expo!
