Three event announcements...
I'll be speaking here this coming Tuesday:
Event is hosted by David Shore from Research Capital.
If you haven't seen David's amazing WEEKLY Web2.0 research report. It includes a summary of all "web 2.0" private and public financing info and some very useful and deep financial data in the space) and highlights. I have not seen anyone else anywhere go into the depth that he on the financial research side of the web2/social network/UGC and casual/social gaming space. Do yourself a favor and hunt him down to get a report & subscription.
It is an international report (with some AMAZING numbers from Asia -- highly complimentary to the awesome research on Asia's Social Networking community that Ben Joffie has done here), and it is better than any report I've seen in the US/Valley in its category. Who ironically I'm hosting in SF for a few days just prior to the event with David -- so if you want to meet Ben in SF, he's on this side of the world for a limited time, catch him while you can. =)
I'll try to get a copy of it up here as well, and add some commentary soon.
2. DemoCamp 19 (!!!) / Toronto
Later in the day I'll be doing a talk at DemoCamp.
Thanks to David Crow, Toronto DemoCamp is a v19.0. That's more versions than Oracle, and more sequals than Rocky. Who could have guessed. The DemoCamp/Toronto community owes David a huge debt for the great work he's done in rallying the alpha-geeks of our great city.
3. Engage Expo / NYC
Thanks to the Dan & Reuben at Virtual Greats/MillionsOfUs (an really cool "branded virtual goods" company), I'll be sharing a panel with Dan to talk about social games and virtual goods at teh Engage Expo.
