Packed panels, great speakers, this has really turned out to be an interesting and fun con, and we're already making plans to attend and even get on a couple panels in October when UGCX is out in Boston. Day one keynoters were the founder/CEO and COO of iStockphoto talking about what it takes to start, operate, be successful in the social media world, six sort of cute--but important--factors: passion is the glue, innovation is imperative, communication counts triple, outsource to the crowd, IT is it, flexible focus is the foundation.
I dashed between panels and hanging out at the Ozmo kiosk answering questions--and we got a lot. I didn't look up that often, but we seemed as busy or busier than anyone else. UGC licensing, it's HOT!
Looking forward to Guy Kawasaki's keynote this morning!
