I'm out in Denver for the Defrag Conference that Eric and crew put together. Today was pretty interesting. I had a chance to meet up with a few folks I don't get to see as often as I used to. But more importantly, I met many new folks who are sure to be part of tomorrow's interesting discussions.
I'm at a bit of a loss right now. I have a speaking slot at 11:30am on Tuesday (agenda) and am still trying to figure out what to talk about. Coming out here, I thought about it and had some ideas. But looking at what the conference talk has all been about, I'm less convinced that I'm on the right track. I have two directions I can run in with it now and need to sort that out.
The first bit of text on the about page is this:
Defrag is the first conference focused solely on the internet-based tools that transform loads of information into layers of knowledge, and accelerate the “aha” moment.
And I think that from there I can talk about the socialization of the Internet and tools/sites we use every day. But I can also go in a slightly different way, talking about the "internet-based tools" and "transform loads of information into knowledge", and how we (Yahoo) can be suppliers of technology and services at many points in that chain.
Or maybe something in between. I'm just not sure yet.
