Run Away And Join The Circus With Us

mbcircus.jpg

Sitting at our desk today and all we can think about is that maybe, we were meant for something a little more fun. We would have made a great Annie Oakley in an updated Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show. In lieu of that, we’re going to attend The Mediabistro Circus is a two-day summit on technology and the critical platforms changing the flow of media. Topics include mobile technology, online video, social networking, blogging, digital publishing and user experience design.

“Most conferences are dry and boring. That’s why we’re calling ours a circus,” said our fearless leader Laurel Touby. “There will be no deadly panel discussions, rehashed conference fodder, or self-congratulatory case studies. Instead, a roster of Internet rock stars will present fresh takes on topics crucial to their businesses.”

We’re interested in seeing Anil Dash, the Chief Evangelist at Six Apart; Jim Louderback, the CEO of Revision 3, an Internet television network focused on developing high-quality nonfiction programming for the on-demand generation; Steve Rubel, senior vice president of the me2revolution practice at Edelman; John Wiley is a user experience designer for Google Apps. There are more, but that’s who we have our sights set upon. You can check in at the conference blog to see the updated speaker announcements.

See you there?
