Web 2.0 Expo, NY: KICKOFF!

Jenn (aka maybeimright) and I are at the Javits Center waiting for today's Web 2.0 festivities to kick off. We've been pouring over the conference guide and schedule, debating which sessions to attend and realizing there are more sessions on our list than time we have in the day. This seems to happen a lot. I'll be blogging the sessions, we'll both be tweeting over at Team_SDN and you should keep your eyes peeled for an update over at SunTAN as well. And of course, if you are here at the Expo and you are free tomorrow at 7pm and are interested in social media marketing, head on over to our BoF: Social Butterflies: Using Social Media to Grow Developer Communities. Okay....time to find our first session!
