Back from Microblogging, Web 2.0 Expo reg codes

eBay is speaking @ Web 2.0 Expo San Francisco 2009140 characters at a time is just so much more my speed these days. But sometimes a girl just has to bust out from these confines and post on her long neglected blog.

What is the occasion? I'm looking for friends to join me at the eBay booth at Web 2.0 Expo SF 2009, March 31- April 3 in San Francisco at Moscone Center West. eBay is speaking, keynoting, sponsoring and looking forward to checking in with some of our developers at the event, like Terapeak, HostedSupport, ahTEXT, and Cloud Conversion. I've been under a social rock for the last 8 weeks planning our presence, and I could use a friendly face or 2!

If you are attending Web 2.0 Expo, don't miss our keynote by eBay Marketplaces CTO and SVP of Platform, Mark Carges on Wednesday, April 1 @ the afternoon keynote.

Another don't miss talk is being given by Farhang Kassaei, Lead Platform Architect at eBay and David Glazer, Director of Engineering at Google, who will be giving a talk on building commerce applications based on the gadgets specification as defined within Open Social. Their talk will be on Wednesday, April 1 @ 1:30pm.

If you know me, you know I can't resist buying a new pair of sweet kicks to get into the spirit of being a booth monkey. So first one to accurately predict or relate (whichever comes first) which color sneakers I wore to all 3 days of the event, first round is on me.
