Users now have the power to create, change and influence not only the web but the world. Will the likes of MySpace, Wikipedia and Secondlife change the way we live, have fun and do business? Is it really a whole new edition of the World Wide Web or just marketing hype? Talk about the future with experts.

Guys and gals,
This being an event about web 2.0 and user generated content..I w ould very much like your questions and suggestions for the event in terms of the issues that should be raised. Either with our speakers or with the audience...

If you want to contribute please leave a comment here...


Would love to go to this, but it seems to be fully booked :(

Sorry to hear that Underpangs

It has been a popular event... the only thing I can recommend is that (and I make no garentees on this at all) you come along on the night and see if you can grab the place from people who don't turn up.


Part of the blurb says "Talk about the future with experts." but in this hype of 'Web 2.0' do "experts" really exist or matter? Isn't it rather like Time Magazine's Person of the Year ..

/me declares a possible bias here as I'm on the panel ;-P
