I’ll be speaking twice at the O’Reilly Emerging Technology Conference this coming March 26-29, 2007 in San Diego, California. ETech is my favorite conference of the year — a great gathering of people who want to talk about fun, new ideas. If you’re in the area or are attending, please drop by and say hi.
My conference session is entitled, “Super Ninja Privacy Techniques for Web App Developers.” At Wesabe, we’ve tried to come up with a bunch of new ways to protect our users’ privacy, and we have a set of newer ideas coming down the line. The session will lay out some of our techniques and how they might apply to other web applications, and talk about the best ways to think about users’ privacy and data rights when you are developing Web 2.0 applications.
During the conference tutorials, I’ll be presenting my talk for technical entrepreneurs, “Coder to Co-Founder: Entrepreneuring for Geeks.” If you’re interested in competing with Wesabe, come on by and I’ll tell you all about how we built it! 🙂 I’ll also cover coming up with an idea, finding co-founders, getting things started, product development, hiring, and fundraising.
Hope to see you there.
