GenuineVC David Beisel's Perspective on Digital Change

October 12, 2007

The first Web2.0 conference which I attended was in 2005, and that one had a very authentic feel to it. It’s interesting to look back at notes from those sessions and the conclusions like “tagging is a short word, but requires a long explanation.” By last year, the conference had grown up to become an extravaganza, for lack of a better descriptive term. And this year’s elevation of the moniker to a “Summit” should continue with that trend. Regardless, conferences are for conversations. The important business is about connecting with people, as opposed to the content in the sessions themselves. Along those lines, if you’ve been meaning to reach out or just want to ensure that we reconnect while we’re both at the show, drop me an e-mail at [david at genuinevc dot com].
