So right now I am up at 8 am on a Monday from the night before. I came back from SES NYC Thursday night and just got done catching up with my 100 or so blogs and half dozen or so forums I track.
While looking through blogs I noticed that I just missed the Online Social Networks conference.
Last night I just bought my ticket and Friday I will be flying out to Austin, TX for the South by Southwest interactive festival. While surfing further I noticed an overlap with O'reilly Emerging Technology conference.
From April 11-12 there is the Search Engine Meeting
From April 25-27 there is Ad Tech
From June 21th-24th there is WebmasteWorld
From June 23-25 there is Gnomedex
From August 2nd-5th there is SES San Jose
I was joking with a friend and we figured that there were about 30 conferences you should go to each year, and it seems like soon that will be the reality.
I think some people have traded in their regular jobs to be traveling salesmen / lead generation / speakers at various conferences. I can't see myself ever trying to be too much of a salesman (or a public speaker), but the conferences sure are fun and there are a ton of them.
Someone should write an ebook about working (or optimizing the output from) the conference scene ;)
