Rev ’em up: 2005 Web 2.0 Conference

I’m just back from sunny Gold Coast, all theme-parked out, and
already I’m planning my family’s next trip. I’d love to make it to the next
Web 2.0 conference, October 5-7 in San Francisco. It’ll be my first
ever trip to America. Of course, the conference ticket price will
be an issue. Hopefully my blog whuffie will come in useful on that
count (I’m Mr Unsubtle today…)

Here’s John Battelle’s
of the recently announced 2005 Web 2.0

“Our initial thinking behind this year’s event reflects an
evolution of Web 2.0’s original theme, which was “the Web as
Platform.” This year we take that as a given, and focus on what the
opportunities and challenges are in this new web ecology, in
particular services and businesses which run over the platform.
Hence the tagline “revving the Web” – both adding power and
features, as well as the idea of building the Web’s next

And I like this precise description over at the official Web 2.0 website:

“The Web 2.0 Conference explores the ongoing evolution of the
Web as a business platform…”

The full skinny is in
the press release

“”Revving the Web” is the theme for the 2005 Web 2.0 Conference,
reflecting the conviction that the web is being transformed into a
new application and business platform. […] The content of the
2005 Web 2.0 Conference will focus on three major areas that are
likely to change both technology and business models: innovations
in infrastructure and interfaces for web-based applications; media
and entertainment; and communications and mobile technology.”

All I can say is: Brrrm Brrrm!!

p.s. due to my holiday, the Web 2.0 Weekly Wrap-Up takes a break
till next week.
