Web 2.0 Has Crashed, UnConference Organizers Urge Upgrade to Web 2.2

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- November 8, 2006 -- BrainJams.org will host its second annual event for internet entrepreneurs and influencers who are already looking beyond "Web 2.0." Based on last year's successful Web 2point1 "unconference," BrainJams.org organized the Web 2point2 event for the real energy in Web 2.0, the people who power it.

The event will be held on November 9th and 10th at Microsoft's Conference Center located at 1 Market Street in San Francisco.

Chris Heuer, one of the co-organizers of the unconference, is inviting guests to spend two days engaged in conversation with each other. Attendees will discover new trends, great ideas, valuable resources and essential collaborators.

Using the Web 2.0 and Social Media tools that are the focus of many of the discussions, they will expand the conversation beyond the physical boundary of the room through blogs and podcasts. Online, they will work with countless others towards common goals that support their common values while respecting their cultural diversity.

Web 2point2 is an 'unconference' that is driven by participants and based on conversations, not PowerPoint decks. It has been organized as a project of BrainJams, Inc., a nonprofit organization that is also organizing Social Media Club. Instead of paying $1-2k at other twoDOToh conferences, Web 2point2 is a bargain at $32.95, thanks to numerous sponsors wanting to support conversations within the community. For their money, participants make out pretty well with refreshments, 2 free lunches, a cool t-shirt, and a couple of drinks each night.

They also get a VIP pass to the Web 2.2 Release Party at Fluid Ultra Lounge on Thursday, November 9 from 7:30pm to Midnight thanks to the financial support of The Personal Bee and the Israel Web Tour. Tickets will be available at the door for $20. Oh yes, you can also buy one of the 40 extra t-shirts only at the party.
