Real-Time Web Summit. It will be an East Coast version of the successful ReadWrite Real-Time Web Summit we held in Mountain View last October. Earlier this month we were in Mountain View again for the ReadWrite Mobile Summit, which also rocked.Team ReadWriteWeb will be in New York City on June 11th to host our 3rd public event, the
Our events bring together a few hundred of the smartest, most interesting developers, businesspeople and visionaries in key emerging areas of the Internet industry. They follow a format that is unorthodox but deeply thought provoking (as that's how we like to roll) called the Unconference. This expert-moderated but participant-led event format makes ReadWriteWeb events some of the most high-value in the industry. You don't have to take our word for it, though. Check out what some attendees have said:
These events end up changing peoples' work in big ways. The Google engineer who transformed the Google Feed API into a real-time push to the browser (see our scoop about it this week) decided to do so after being inspired by our last event. We've spoken with at least one real-time startup that secured high-profile investor backing after making connections at that event as well.
Here's a few thoughts about our last real-time web event:
John Borthwick, CEO of Betaworks:
"The RWW Real-Time Web Summit was excellent - friggin' great in fact. I hauled a handful members of my team across country for it and my only regret was that I didn't bring more of them. I'm looking forward to the next one."
Laura Fitton, founder of venture-funded Twitter app directory OneFourty:
"There were a lot of investors there and it was a great dialogue between startups and investors. The unconference format was great because it got away from the bogus who-is in the real-time Web, and made it who-wants-to-be. You didn't have to be big and influential to get your ideas across - if it was a good idea then it got heard. It wasn't just Twitter, it was many things real time, defined pretty expansively."
That event was great, but our next event may have been even better. Here are a few thoughts shared by participants in that one.
Michael Nguyen, patent lawyer at Fenwick & West:
"I loved it so much, it was probably one of the most participatory, engaging and thought provoking experiences I've ever had at a conference. And as a lawyer I go to lots of them."
Violet Blue, sex educator and author:
"It was the best best best event I've been to in years, and I mean it. To be frank, I almost left ten minutes after I arrived, thinkingthat I was completely out of place. Turns out I was exactly in the right place all along. I left feeling completely energized about media, innovation, women in tech, new social models, and have so many new ideas about what I want to do next and what I want to get involved in. What I really didn't expect was to walk away with a pretty clear picture of what the future of mobile media (and social media) looks like. Now I'm staring at invites to keynote at a couple of tech events this year and hoping they're a fraction of the win that was the RWW Mobile Summit."
Ted Morgan, CEO of Skyhook Wireless (the company that powers wifi location tracking in the iPhone):
"The ReadWriteWeb Mobile Summit was a fantastic event to interact with all the key players in the mobile world during an intense day of participant driven sessions."
Phil Hendrix, analyst at the Institute for Mobile Markets Research:"The topics that were suggested were very useful and the discussions themselves were quite interesting. We had a good mix of individuals who were contributing different perspectives, there was good back and forth that made the discussions very productive. Another highlight was the Speed Geeking demo hour. Even though they were compressed, 5 minutes or so, that was really just right - great format, the selection of companies was good. Durring the hour there were 8 or 9 companies. It was a great experience, well worth it. Unconventional format, I wasn't sure what to expect when I registered. They assured me it would be a productive day and indeed it was. I was delighted to come out and spend the day and would certainly do it again."
Does this sound good or what? Don't miss your chance, register for our next event now.
