The first Web 2.0 EXPO of 2009 has begun in San Fransisco, CA. Because of the recession the Expo is downsized; the number of attendees was more than 10,000 last year and this year about 8,000 attendees are expected.
I think the hot topics of the Expo will be:
– Less is More – The art of staying less expensive and more efficient
– Goverment 2.0 & How Obama used and will use the Web 2.0
-Will Twitter be able to have a revenue model? & Using Twitter in business for profit
-Using Web 2.0 as a tool to cut costs
Despite economic situation, the Web 2.0 Expo is alive and still one of the most important events in the IT industry. The Expo’s theme “The Power of Less” expresses the benefits of using Web 2.0 based collaborative tools for cost saving.
If you can’t attend and still wonder wha’s going on Web 2.0 Expo like me, you should check the its website after the Expo. We’d appreciate O’Reilly & TechWeb sharing the keynote video and presentation slides from all events they organize in the way of Web 2.0 .
