the weblogging world seems to be all a twitter over the emerging tech 2005 lineup. emerging tech 2004 sort of spoiled me on other conferences... so much so that i haven't been satisfied with a single con that i've been to since. a lot of that may have had to do with camping, partying and meeting a grip of new folks at the "emerging loft", which from what i understand will be returning this year.
needless to say, the lineup for 2005 looks really strong. i'm hoping that i'll get another comped admission - but if i don't, i'll find a way to attend. but even if i have to lobbycon it, i'll be sure to be there.
p.s. for the truly hardcore, i've set up a brutally simple emerging tech countdown page. and yes, i am that sad an individual.
