On Monday morning I'll be heading to New York for the Search Engine Strategies conference. I'm presenting on and participating in the "News and Webfeed Search" panel at 2:00pm on Tuesday the 1st of March.

Jerry Yang is doing the keynote that morning.

If you're attending, make sure to hit the Yahoo party on Tuesday night. As the site says:

Please join us as we celebrate Yahoo!'s 10th birthday on Tuesday, March 1 at the Hammerstein Ballroom, located at 311 West 34th St. between 8th and 9th Ave., from 7:30 - 10:30 p.m. Stop by the Yahoo! booth, #1001, to receive your invitation and don't forget to also bring your SES conference badge to attend the party. Hors d'Oeuvres and cocktails will be served. We look forward to seeing you there.

Free Drinks! :-)

I'm heading back to San Jose on Wednesday morning so that I can board a plane headed for Japan on Thursday. More on that later.

Well, you couldn't have picked a better day to fly to NYC :( We're supposed to get a foot (or more) of snow before it ends tonight or tomorrow AM.

If you miss your return flight back to SJC (weather is probably going to mess up everything), you can get to Narita pretty easily from the East Coast. Hopefully, you've got your passport with you.

I'd suggest taking a quick flight to Toronto (Pearson - YYZ), and flying Cathay-Pacific to Narita, from Toronto. They have some direct flights, though you may be stuck connecting through Hong-Kong (which isn't too bad). I make the NYC to NRT trek several times a month, and you can't beat Cathay.

Good luck to you.

Had some thoughts about search engines. I'm keeping track of search engines that have a single feed for their output.

About the SES meeting, could the following topic get raised or put on the next-cycle agenda:

Creating a search engines standard to include an XML-feed button for the search output?

Or would this subject be better brought up elswhere?

BTW: My vote for the best integrated blog-tag-XML-feed search platforms far: BlogDigger.

I noticed the vertical track starting just after 11AM on 1Mar05, related to search engines, tags, and feeds.

My eyes widened . . . Without knowing about the conference, I did extensive testing on this particular area over the past week. LOL

At the link, I've included a summary-blog-spot on my test in this area, the summary results, recommendations, and why it may be of interest to those attending the Vertical Track shortly.

I've already sent this out on my feed and pinged it. As a favor, please could you [or someone reading your blog knows someone that is plans to attend this particular track] forward them the link under my name?

Thank you for considering my information, :-)


[Sorry about the multiple posts. BTW: I fixed the HTML in your blog ;-)].
