Pubcon has ended and probably won’t reappear in the USA until next year here in Las Vegas. It was a nice conference and I really think Brett deserves a lot of credit for keeping this as the ‘affordable’ search conference, as well as the most technically advanced. He told me 2100 attendees this year – almost double from last time.
Due to some flaky internet connectivity at the motel and during the conference I missed posting nearly as often as I would have liked to but I’m now at LAS Airport with superb and *free* WIFI. I wrote about the free LAS Wifi last time I was here. Aiports would be smart to adopt the ad supported model, especially as increasing numbers of frequent travelers use EVDO or just slow cell connectivity rather than pay 9.95 to pick up a few mails.
Ad supported free WIFI is a win win for a lot in the food chain, and I’m glad to see Google start this in Mountain View and MSN’s getting the idea for some WA locations.
Plane’s about to leave but I wanted to say thanks to Brett and Pubcon staff for a conference well done!
