I’m Dropping by Web 2.0 Expo

Just a quick note to say that I’m going to be in California for New Comm Forum this week. On Wednesday, April 23, I’m going to scoot down to Web 2.0 Expo to see a couple of clients and conduct a couple of interviews for our forthcoming book. I was fortunate to get media accreditation for the latter event (conveniently, our book is distributed by O’Reilly, the same people who put on the conference).

I know I’m a minnow in the tech-blogger ocean, but if any Web 2.0 Expo attendees want to pitch me, feel free. I like Stowe’s Twitpitch model:

Here’s the rules for Twitpitching:

  1. All companies who would like to have a meeting with me, need to send me a Twittered description of the product. Yes, please Twitter it to me at www.twitter.com/stoweboyd. Yes, one tweet, 140 characters less the eleven used for “@stoweboyd “.
  2. Optionally, send a supporting twitpitch with one link, and no other text. Could be to anything: website, video, press release, Rick Astley, etc.
  3. Then, twitter me one or more suggested times/place to meet at the event, using the times on the calendar, and a location in the conference building I won’t have time to visit your nearby hotel or offices.

If anybody wants to Twitpitch me, fire away.

    A Twitpitch might be more effective is Twitter was working properly – which it doesn’t seem to be at the moment.

    Hey Darren, stick to simple mobile text messaging, it’s easier and well, more effective.
