Come and Get It: Blogger Credential for Oracle OpenWorld
By blogsadmin on Jun 12, 2008
You may recall that last year, Oracle issued blogger credentials at Oracle OpenWorld for the first time.
Well, call it an annual event: blogger credentials will be issued this year as well, starting now! Register at this URL. (Note: this looks like a generic attendee form but it does go straight to the Blogger Care & Feeding Team. Replace "Company Name" with "Blog Name".)
Sorry, authors of wine & cheese blogs need not apply. We are indeed looking for people who can add to the conversation in a productive way, so you may be asked for details about your blog's focus.
Credentialed bloggers (sounds like an oxymoron, no?) will have access to all kinds of great stuff, the details of which the Blogger Care & Feeding Team is working on right now. AppsLab Jake and I are both personally involved in making this a rewarding experience, so no worries there!
More details about this program to come as I get them.
Update (9:29am) - perhaps I should also mention that this program is for non-employees only. Sorry, Oracle employee bloggers!
Update (6/15) - I've seen some grumbling in the 'sphere about the ostensible "opacity" of the approval process. Folks, it's just plain common sense: the blog has to be relevant. (See "wine & cheese" language above.) That's it.
