hey FF - check your email - I'm not sure if that will still help you but it might.

thanks -- but it looks like i missed the online reg cutoff. I'll ask around at work and see if anyone has extra passes.

Justin.tv will be at the expo and the later Netvibes party, for those of us who live too far away to attend.

Ugh, no. If I'm going to be involved in a circlejerk the size of a conference that puts "Web 2.0" in its name, I'm going to do it with people who DON'T use computers for a living.

Sorry, I've already had my fill of New York International Auto Show 1.0 Alpha.

I'll likely be going Tuesday or Wednesday (aka Tuesday 2.0)

I didn't know people still used "Web 2.0" non ironically.

2.0 = nothing more than marketing fluff

The expo looks interesting, but their website sucks. The best info was in a pdf file. That ain't 2.0, if 2.0 is anything beyond fluff.

Did they just totally steal the colour scheme from MetaTalk, or what?

i'd like to thank the 50% of respondents who did their job and help keep www.metafilter.com as the number one manufacturer of edgy, cooler-than-thou commentary. i wasn't able to favorite all your comments, but know you're all favorited in my heart.

the rest of you talking about the actual event -- shape up! what the fuck? that is not what metatalk threads are for.

specialk420 - curious - where did you end up staying? Did the hive steer you right?
I work close by and my company is actually a sponsor - but my little slice of the business isn't hawt enough to warrant me being there.

don't know if you ended up going to 111 tonight, but I am likely to be going tomorrow.
