Meanwhile, I want to use this space to plug another great event. It’s called eTech, and it’s pretty much the kissing cousin of Web 2.0. eTech is where the seeds of new and interesting technologies are first discovered, whilst Web 2.0 is where they take root in the soil of business. Of course you should go to both, but eTech is coming up first. It’s another conference from the great folks at O’Reilly, who I work with on Web 2.0.
In any case, Rael Dornfest, program chair and O’Reilly CTO, has graciously given me a registration discount code to pass along to you all for the event, which will be held March 14-17 in San Diego.
The code is “et05sb” – just head to the registration site and plug it in. It will add another 5% discount to the already discounted early reg fee.
And by the way, Rael has a great site, and riffed on A9/Amazon’s news last week. He has a cool idea for Amazon – check it out!
