VON07 – Chris Brogan – Connecting People

VON ended yesterday , and after tons of parties, discussions, and panels, I am certainly more educated about the new media field.

One thing makes this event different from others. Chris Brogan, Network2.tv community developer was quite amazing in my opinion. In a way, he is the networking equivalent of the Energizer Bunny. The guy was always nice and smiling, and gave me the feeling that he is constantly thinking who should I meet. He has introduced me to a bunch of guys that without his pro-activity, no chance I would have met. Considering the fact that this multi-day event also included a lot of parties, it seems like sleep was no more than a concept for him. The same goes for Carl Ford on the Voice on the Net side, that introduced me to many valuable contacts in informal gatherings.

So, when you think about whether to come or not to go to VON:

1. Don’t just look at the exhibitors and decide based on that -VON is a great place to meet and interact, much better than most of the shows I know.

2. Don’t forget to say hello to Chris and Carl.

    You’re kind. I was simply making certain that people who are interesting (you) met with people who like interesting people (all those other people). : )

    It’s an easy formula when the person at the core of it all, you, is worth talking with.

    Thanks for your participation and I look forward to seeing you in Tel Aviv.
