F50: A Different Kind Of Tech Conference
Faster than you can say "Can I borrow your copy of 'How To Win Friends And Influence People,'" it's tech conference season again. There hasn't been a week during the month of May where I haven't attended a tech conference or traveled to something tech conference-related. And judging by Techmeme's events calendar the state of affairs only gets worse as we get deeper into summer. Between Disrupt NYC last week, D10 tomorrow, NY Founders and Le Web London in June, Allen & Co, Sun Valley in July, the CrunchUp in August and TechCrunch Disrupt in San Francisco in September, the tech community is pretty much spending the next couple of months checking in and out of airports on Foursquare, Path, Instagram or whatever their social/mobile/local drug of choice currently is.
