I’m Heading to San Francisco for the Web 2.0 Expo

Web 2.0 Expo San Francisco 2009

I’m heading to Sunny California on Monday the 30th for a week long immersion into the Web 2.0 Expo. Unlike the past years at #w2e where I was presenting or exhibiting Empressr, this year I will be there checking out what new technologies and ideas are being presented and blogging back about them. This is a slightly different approach, but what happens when you are involved with the conference is that you never get a chance to listen and see what is going on in the rest of the event. I am excited at this opportunity.

Want to see what’s new with Empressr, to schedule some time with me for a demo just follow @empressr on Twitter then DM me your availability.

lots of new enhancements and features, most importantly we have redesigned the core so that adding new features will be easier for us in the future.

so take a test drive, sign up, and create something.
