What if Chris Dixon and John Borthwick were sitting at the same table as you, ready to have a real conversation about what's next for the real-time Web? Would you like to sit across from Marshall Kirkpatrick and Richard MacManus and have a straight-shooting conversation about real-time online media? If so, then the ReadWriteWeb Real-Time Web Summit is for you. And thanks to its unconference format, the day will be like participating in a think tank - you and a group of tech luminaries collaborating on the future of the Web.
John Borthwick, CEO BetaWorks - one of the leading investors in the Real-Time Web.

What's an Unconference?
It's simple: With the help of a professional facilitator, Kaliya Hamlin, you and everyone attending the conference create an agenda in real-time on the day of the event. This ensures that what's covered is important, timely, and exactly what you want to talk about. To see the power of the unconference format in action, check out this video of session pitching at the recent ReadWriteWeb Mobile Summit:
The rest of the day is spent debating and discussing the issues. Notetakers record the sessions throughout, and we record video when possible.
We can assure you that by the end of the day you'll have made new contacts, participated in some ground-breaking discussions, and (if you were brave enough) worked side-by-side with people you admire.
We hope to see you there.
Today we're giving away five free tickets to our readers who have the most interesting thoughts about the real-time Web. Let us know your comments, concerns, predictions and premonitions in the comments below!
