The first day of the World Business Forum was great. I am going to take a little time to process my thoughts and notes (see my Twitter feed for some of my initial thoughts). The barrage of speakers was a fire hose of information. I am very impressed at how many blog posts have already been written by some of the bloggers that are in attendance. Here is a shot of the Blogger’s Hub – we were in the 3rd mezzanine which is a great view.
30 of us went out for dinner at the Beacon Restaurant. As I hoped, we had a fantastic meal and wonderful conversations. Despite having a very full day, every time I looked around the room, people were deep in conversations on everything from analyzing the day to discussing the latest FTC rules on disclosure. [My full disclosure: HSM gave show passes to all of the bloggers, but we are free to write about everything; the Beacon Restaurant provided great service – we all paid for our own dinners; I MET GEORGE LUCAS]
Since I coordinated the dinner, I did ask that everyone say hi on video. The light in the restaurant was dim, so the footage is a little dark.
