Just being back after four weeks

Being back after four weeks on holidays (!), I've been screening some new social media content on the Internet and I was especially interested in the Web 2.0 Expo / summit series . The event is divided in two parts: the expo (will take place in NY in November) and the summit, that will be held in San Francisco a little bit earlier (October 20-22, 2009). The marketing around the summit is fantastic, knowing that you have to request an invitation to pay and assist to the event, which is - if you think on it - absolutely in contradiction with a democratic Web 2.0 approach (all is transparent, accessible and most of the time, free of charge)... if you're lucky enough to get an invite, let me know...otherwise, just check - as I do - some good presentations on YouTube...
