New Topic Idea for Web2point2

Since Chris Heuer, host and event organizer of 2point2, has requested that participants write blog posts to facilitate topics for the board to consider as topics for the Main Talks or the “How To” sessions, I thought I’d keep the ideas flowing.

I’d like to see a discussion of new opportunities for Tags outside of Technorati. Greg Narain of BlueWhale Labs and Social Roots and I were speaking about the idea of Tag Beacons recently during the Webguild Web 2.0 event earlier in the week and how they could benefit conference organizers during pre- and post- show blogosphere coverage. For example, in this case, we came up with “webguildweb20,” but the idea would be that Webguild would provide that info proactively on their site and in media kits issued to writers.

Of course the idea of Tag Beacons can be used in almost anything. For example, I recently read a post over at Stowe Boyd’s /Message that discussed the concept of using tags in the support industry – based on his discussions with Chris Carfi and Alex Barnett.

On another note, there is (or, is there) also a need for a collective, searchable tag cloud, online social app, or widget that helps day-to-day bloggers standardize on tag formats as well as capturing popular tags in a given segment – wihtout having to manually figure it out?

Contributing to Topics to Web 2point2

If you want to lead a Main Talk (in the big room) write a post and tag it with “web22talk“. If you want to lead a “How To” session or serve as a Technology Coach, write a post and tag it with “web22howto“.

About Web 2point2

Web 2point2 is an ‘unconference’ that is driven by participants and based on conversations, not powerpoints. It is run as a project of BrainJams, Inc. a California Non Profit organization that is also organizing Social Media Club

The people who will be in attendance are the influentials of the Blogosphere and Web 2.0 movement who are in the trenches doing the real work, starting up new companies and sharing their understanding of what they learn through Social Media such as blogs, vlogs and podcasts. In short, the crowd will be largely made up of peers and contemporaries in the resurgence of the Web.

    FBI reports that online crime is at an all time high. So why are we hearing so little about it? Cyber crime has been estimated by the US Treasury to be more valuable than the illegal drugs trade – worth more than $100 billion a year ( What you don't see talked about much is that most large internet corporations are Mafia owned, and when a new successful company rises up, they buy it. Almost all online pornography is owned by mafia, usualy made from captive women & children in Russia or Eastern Europe. Large amounts of free spyware/antivirus software is created by mafia (, household names, & unsafe against their manufacturer, who create the kind of viruses etc. which you are trying to clean from your computer to begin with. About the only serious online non Mafia corporation is Microsoft, which is under continual attack from them, the reason you need continual security updates. You can read about how I came to know these things here:
