As you all know, last Friday we held the ReadWriteWeb Mobile Summit, in Mountain View, California. The Real-Time Web Summit in NYC will follow the same unconference format, which we have gotten a lot of great feedback on. To see the power of the unconference format, check out the video below showing the session pitching at the Mobile Summit:
Register for the Real-Time Web Summit
The ReadWriteWeb Real-Time Web Summit on June 11th in NYC will be an exploration of the latest Real-Time Web trends. This is our second Summit on Real-Time Web, following on from our successful debut event in Mountain View last October.
We invite you to register now at the early bird rate of just $295.00. This rate is valid until May 17th, at which point it will increase.
What is the Real-Time Web?
We were one of the first publications to analyze the Real-Time Web and we've since written extensively about it. We also published a premium report on the subject last year, which featured interviews with 50 companies, developers and executives building or leveraging real-time Web technology.
So what is the Real-Time Web? In a primer last year, we defined it as "a new form of communication, it creates a new body of content, it's immediate, it's public and has an explicit social graph associated with it, and it carries an implicit model of federation."
The most widely known application of the Real-Time Web is Twitter. However, it's much more than Twitter or Facebook. The Real-Time Web is a set of technologies that impacts almost every service, activity and application on the Web. Come to the Summit to understand how it impacts you, your business and your next development.
The Benefits of the Unconference Format
An unconference is a free flowing, organically generated series of group discussions agreed on and led by attendees.

This is our third 'unconference' event and we think it fits our brand perfectly. Firstly, much like the current era of the Web, unconferences encourage two-way communication. This generates new, actionable ideas and means that you typically learn much more than you would at a traditional conference. Secondly, due to the high quality of our reader base, ReadWriteWeb's unconference events attract an intelligent, influential group of people. So the networking is superb!
Two-way dialog on a big Internet trend happening under one roof with the industry's smartest people? What's not to like :-)
I explained a bit more about how the format works in this interview with Renee Blodgett last Friday:
And to get a feel for how thoughtful discussion happens at these events, check out the comments by Ted Morgan, Chris Saad and Ben Metcalfe in this video by Evelyn Rusli from TechCrunch:
In short, the unconference format makes for a creative, energized environment. We've had some wonderful feedback on our previous two unconference events. You can listen to feedback from various attendees, via recordings by Marshall Kirkpatrick on Cinch Audio.
