When Web 2.0 collides with Bubble 2.0 is the result real, sustainable business or faddish pipe dreams?

Join us at the inaugural Chinwag Live evening - where everybody's input counts - to lift the lid on what's happening and start making sense of the issues...

Should start-ups be built to flip or built to last? Do we care if business models are inbuilt or just emerge? Are we fashioning the digital future or jockeying for short-term gains?

Is the stress on VC and angel funding blinding us to the plus points of bootstrapping? How else to develop an idea?

How is talent being supported and incubated? And what are portals, broadcasters and telcos bringing to the equation? Can they foster innovation and help bring it to market?

We only announced this event properly yesterday and 24 hours later 40% of the tickets are already gone.

If you want to come along, I'd strongly advise nipping onto the page and booking soon. Cheers.


There's 7 tickets left as of 3.30pm today - if you want one move quickly, I reckon it'll be sold out by Monday.


The event is sold out as of today lunchtime.

If there is a cancellation list, please put me on it - or anyone discovers they can't attend then let me know. Thanks.


Hi Stuart, I'm handling the waiting list and will add your name to it. We will let you know in the 2 days prior to the event if a space becomes available. Thanks.


Could you please Add Jack Fairhall and Raj Anand from Kwiqq.com to the waiting list too please! Thanks


Hi Raj - could you email me your contact details as we may need to call you at quite short notice before the event if there are enough cancellations to offer you a place. Thanks! deirdre(DOT)molloy(AT)chinwag.com


Clashes with the "Flag and Bell: Tech Pub Crawl" oh well... I'll be at Wobble.


As of yesterday, two changes to the line up:

Andrew Orlowski - editor-at-large for The Register - will be joining the panel. A longstanding critic of "Web 2.0", Andrew spent six years in Silicon Valley and is writing a book on technology and utopias.

Journalist Mike Butcher of Vecosys will now be chairing the event.


Pictures of the event are now up here:
