Another one for the "I want" series. It sounds like Gnomedex this year is going to be really interesting. I have been following the official website, and I am really tempted to attend - my wife knows it. Will have to decide shortly.
The fifth annual Gnomedex - a conference for entrepreneurs and tech enthusiasts - is in Seattle this year. The organiser is Chris Pirillo's LockerGnome. It brings together industry influencers so tech companies can meet them face to face. That's it, a conference for entrepreneurs and tech enthusiasts. This year's theme is all about what we do here: Producing, Consuming, & Monetizing Technology.
Gnomedex promises to demystify RSS, blogging, podcasting, and BitTorrent - providing ideas and contacts to businesses who are still finding these terms difficult to grasp.
This year’s keynote speaker is Adam Curry, who has been one of the heaviest online media influencers over the past year. Past speakers have included John C. Dvorak, Tim O'Reilly, cmdrtaco of Slashdot, Dan Gillmor, Evan Williams, Pud Kaplan, Doc Searls, Robert Scoble, Wil Wheaton, Jim Louderback, Steve Gillmor, Jason Calacanis, and Steve "Woz" Wozniak.
It is happening at the Bell Harbor International Conference Center from 23-25 June 2005. Both Wi-Fi and power strips (of course!) will be provided to attendees, two items that are essential for the success of any technology conference.
I want to go... But whether or not I can is the challenge.
