WebVisions 2007

Webvisions is coming this week in Portland Oregon and I hope we'll see you there. From the site:

Join the rockstars of design, user experience and business strategy for two days of mind-melding on what's new in the digital world.

I'm going to be speaking on How Blogs and Mobile Are Changing World Travel at 2:45 on Thursday. The talk is based on our experiences in blogging our trip around the world in 2006.

I'm really looking forward to seeing some old friends and making some new ones. My friends Paul Ingram and Kurt and Douglas from Ask-a-Ninja are also speaking. Strangely enough, I recently realized that Douglas is the same Douglas with which I was friends in college.

If you're going, leave a comment and we'll hook up in Portland.
