Would you attend an FIR conference?
Jeremiah Owyang would, so we’re taking the idea seriously.
Thanks to Jeremiah Owyang, we have a vision for an FIR Conference
More than once, Jeremiah has insisted he’d pay to attend an FIR conference that included Shel and Neville as speakers, along with correspondents like Dan York, Michael Netzley, Eric Schwartzman, Sallie Goetsch and David Phillips (and, who knows, maybe even Lee Hopkins)—depending on availability—along with FIR’s listeners, notably many of those who have contributed to the conversation via comments.
In addition to presentations, we envision part of the conference adopting a sort of FIRCamp approach, with presentations on the fly from whoever wants to present one, and a lot of networking, providing an opportunity for members of the FIR community to meet and engage face-to-face.
In order to determine whether we’re on to something or have taken leave of our senses, we’re asking you. This poll will remain open until September 3, so please share your opinion. We’ll deal things like location, date and price once we get a good read on the general feasibility of the notion.
Thanks for your vote!
If you’d like to embed this poll in your own blog—in a post, perhaps, or in your sidebar—please feel free to do that. Just go to the Twtpoll site for this poll and copy and paste the appropriate embed code.
Thanks for your support!
I echo the sentiments of Jeremiah and would love to attend an FIR conference. I really think it’s important that it is something that involves the entire community. If people have been listening to you as long as I have, they MUST have some good things to share.
In the meantime, keep up the great work on the podcast! Cheers. NJSPosted by Nathan Schock on 08/24 at 05:00 PM
