Christian Perry: master tech conf promoter

Christian Perry is someone I admire. He’s cool. Young. And his events are interesting and usually packed in like a sardine can. I expect no less from his SNAP Summit, Friday in San Francisco (SNAP=Social Networking Application Platform.

Victor Karamalis has details on this summit

Speaking of events, you should check out my monster list of tech events around the world. If you add me as a friend I’ll see your events too and I’ll add them to my calendar. Upcoming.org really rocks.

Eric Norlin defragged

You might not know Eric Norlin but I’ve been following him for a long time. He’s one of the folks who started the Digital ID World conference and is now senior editor there. Now he’s starting a new Internet-focused conference called “Defrag.” I caught him in one of the back rooms at the Digital ID World and we have a fun 42 minute conversation about all sorts of things.

If you are thinking of planning a conference you won’t want to miss this one. We cover the economics of putting on conferences. We also talk about a ton of stuff.

This is a continuation of “smart people week” on ScobleShow. Heh, it’s actually always smart people week, but it’s fun just to do a conversation like this with a smart guy who runs major industry conferences. Hope you enjoy.
