BlogOn 2004 July 23 Berkeley California

BlogOn 2004 July 23 Berkeley California

This just in from Becky Sniffen....

"A new blogging & social media conference called BlogOn 2004 ... takes place July 23 in Berkeley, CA. BlogOn explores the business end of blogging, seeking to marry the inventiveness of blogging companies to the investors and tech leaders who will support the humble blog’s rise to the top of the corporate communications ladder. Prominent technology conference host Chris Shipley, along with speakers from the best-known blogging companies, will illuminate the business stories behind social media: the business models that will succeed and fail, the impact of the blogging phenomenon on tech and business culture, the ways in which new social media technologies will drive the next-generation Web, and how corporations can best use this rising technological toolset to achieve their goals."
