April 12, 2010

MinneWebCon 2010 is less then six weeks away! Here's the latest about  
the region's third annual web design and social media conference:

1. Sessions and speakers:  Our 12 regular breakout sessions have been  
finalized  details about them are now on the web site.
      ("unconference" discussion sessions are still being finalized,  
and information about them will be added very soon)

2. Registration: Online registration opened last month, and the  
conference is almost half full.  Our rates remain the same as in 2008  
and 2009:

* Standard registration: $200

* With University of MN staff discount: $150*

* With student discount (any school): $100

3. Free stuff  tech books: We're once again giving away a limited  
number of tech books to the first people who check in on the morning  
of Monday April 12 (check-in will begin at 7:45 a.m., one hour before  
the morning keynote). The first shipment of books arrived last month  
from New Riders.

4. More free stuff  commemorative poster: This year there's something  
completely new and very exciting  we've commissioned art!  Every  
conference attendee will receive a limited edition Adam Turman  
silkscreened poster. Adam is a 1999 graphic design graduate of the U  
of M, so we couldn't be happier to partner with him on this event  

5. Tech MN podcast: Jeff Pesek of Tech.MN interviewed me about  
MinneWebCon in late February. If you're interested in hearing how the  
conference came to be and what it's about, take a listen!
