I just finished the panel discussion ("Web 2.0: Show Me The Money") in which I got to hang out on stage with Tim O'Reilly, Michael Arrington, Adam Trachtenberg, and Royal Farros and talk about all sorts of things around what Web 2.0 is, where money is made, and so on.
The panel seemed to go well. It took a bit of time before the audience started to ask questions, but once they did it never stopped.
The weirdest thing about this conference is that nobody is quite sure who is in the audience. It's not your typical Microsoft conference aimed squarely at developers. It's not quite an O'Reilly Web 2.0 conference. It's just... different. The audience is a real mixed bag and that's okay. It just makes things a bit harder to predict.
I'm anxiously awaiting lots of other postings from attendees so that I get a better sense of what people think and what I'm missing in the next few days.
I tried to find a photo of our panel (I know many people were snapping pics) but don't yet see one on Flickr. At least there isn't one tagged with mix06 yet.
