Live From New York it's...

Web 2.0 Expo New York City   

... the Web 2.0 Expo!!! (Not Saturday night, sorry, but Tina Fay is amazing.)

Arrived in the big city on a flight and found my way to an old linux guru colleague and UNC classmate Jared's Manhatten pad. He's graciously offered a sweet couch to crash on while the conference is going on. Supremely clutch.

Looking ahead at the schedule of sessions going on at the conference makes it clearly evident this is going to be a crazy, fast-paced week. I don't know what the connectivity story is over at the Javits Center but I'll be doing my best to live blog or almost live blog on the sessions I'm attending.
