Web 2.0 Events and Other News

Various events of interest coming-up soon:

  • MashupCamp is just around the corner, starting on the 20th of this month. It's sold-out but it looks like some more of the waitlisters will get on the 'in' list this week.
  • On the 16th of this month in NYC is Building Enterprise Web Apps on a Budget - How We Built Flickr, a workshop taught by Cal Henderson the senior developer of Flickr.
  • DC 2.0 is the Washington DC area's first Web 2.0 event. Looks good.
  • O'Reilly's ETech is next month and will have its usual extremely interesting mix of speakers and attendees.
  • Mix 06, a Microsoft-sponsored event is happening on March 20-22 in Las Vegas. Focus is on Live-flavored APIs, mashups, and web as platform. Also featured: an unscripted one-on-one with Bill Gates and Tim O'Reilly.

And some notable news/updates from the Web 2.0 Workgroup:

  • Dion Hinchcliffe earlier this week provided some very useful perspective on the mashup ecosystem. And Dion's now editor-in-chief of the newly launched magazine: Web 2.0 Journal.
  • Dave Winer has been working on the NewsRiver API.
  • Two good blogs have been added to the workgroup, both focused on the mobile aspects of Web 2.0: Ajit Jaokar's Open Gardens and Oliver Starr's MobileCrunch.
  • Design 2.0 from Emily Chang does a very nice job of analyzing the feedback on design philosophy from their extensive series of eHub interviews with Web 2.0 creators and companies.
  • And Stowe Boyd recently launched his lively new blog on social software: /Message.
