Confabb opens to conference attendees, speakers, planners (video)

Yesterday I was at Dave Winer’s house and got an early look at Confabb, a Web 2.0 site that just opened this morning.

Since I’ve been involved in planning, attending, or speaking at dozens of conferences and expos and other events this was very interesting to me.

In a few minutes I’ll have a demo and interview with founder Salim  Ismail up on ScobleShow. UPDATE: the interview is up (latest Quicktime required). By the way, that was done on Dave Winer’s “RSS couch.” Demo coming shortly is up now.

Is this a cool demo? Nah, not like last week’s Photosynth. Will it put Microsoft out of business? Nah. But is it something that you will probably use? I think so, at least if you’re going to go to a conference.

I’ll definitely use it to update the CES 2007 site on Confabb and add mention of our BlogHaus, which will be in the Bellagio there (Seagate, Microsoft, and AMD are sponsoring that).

Of course TechCrunch has a mention of it up already.

  1. Hey Robert,
    Great interview – jeez the camera has added many pounds (do I look that plump?)

    One small edit request: my last name is spelt ‘Ismail’ (my blog being, of course, “you’ve got ismail”).

  3. I just got my badge for CES with coupons for Box Lunches!

    As you know I go to many conferences, when will anyone find the time to add content to confabbb?

  5. [...] Confabb just launched today. The place to find conferences and seminars. This is something I know that Mr. Business Golf will be hitting up hard in the very near future. Not only did we get a nice TechCrunch overview of it, the Scobleizer blog has a video posted. [...]

  6. I couldn’t find DevConnections the conference I attended last week with 5000 other people.

    Have a good look at the conferences that are listed, print a copy and read it out loud at a comedy club, they’ll be laughing for hours!

  8. [...] I’m intrigued. Two years ago, I tried something like this — a repository of interesting conferences and local Seattle events — using TypePad as a database. My students didn’t seem interested enough to add content, and it was too much work for a solo effort. Community is a Good Thing for a project like this. Hmm. How to add a custom RSS feed about Seattle events to a web page … (tip) [...]
