How to Bluff Your Way in Web 2.0 | March 11, 2007

SXSW has been lots of fun so far, and it’s only the second day. It’s much, much bigger than previous years, although I say that every year. This year there are eight tracks spread across two levels of the convention centre, so the is a lot of running around between rooms and bumping into people on the fly. There are so many cool people here, fleeting conversations are the norm, and quality time is in short supply.

Jeremy and Myself did our talk yesterday morning. I always like doing talks on the first day as it gets things out of the way and frees up your time for the important job of drinking and socialising. Our talk this year was entitled “How to Bluff your Way in Web 2.0” and if you’ve seen any of our previous SXSW sessions, you’ll know that it was vaguely tongue-in-cheek. The talk went extremely well, and Jeremy had the crowd eating out of his hand. I’ll post a link to the mp3 when it comes on line in a few months, but in the meantime, feel free to download our slides.

Oh, and if you happen to be in Austin Monday evening, I hope to see you at The Great British Booze-up which starts at 7:30pm at the Lava Lounge on 7th Street, just round the corner from the Iron Cactus. There will be food, free drinks and great music, so hope to see you all there.

Thanks for this very nice presentation. Slide 12 reminds me of something I wrote in December … ;)

“Great minds think alike” or is it “fools never differ”?

Nice one Andy, the slides look good. Hopefully I’ll catch an mp3 of the talk.

It looks like we were well on our way to bluffing web 2.0 with Nakatomi…

Great slides with valuable information. Thank you!

On page 28 you wrote: “Web 2.0 is so last year. I’m focussing on web 3.0.”

I would be very interested in hearing/reading your prophecy about web 3.0!

Downloading and looking at as we speak. Thanks

I am interested in what people think and say about web 2.0. I think its just a buzz word but I like to hear other peoples opinions on it, so thanks
