Widget Summit Is a two-day widget conference that is going to take place on October 15-16 in San Francisco organized and hosted by Niall Kennedy of last year Widgets Live that he hosted along OM Malik, but since OmMalik is now too known to go for this and Niall Kennedy is known enough i guess he decided to go solo with this.
Here are the direct quotes from the even description:
Widget Summit is a two-day conference on widgets and content syndication. Web pages have gotten smaller, dynamic, and distributed as components within the desktop, personalized homepage, social network, blog sidebars, mobile phones, and even dedicated hardware. Today’s publishers need to reach their audience wherever and whenever they may choose to interact with content. Widgets lead the way towards a distributed web loosely joined.
Widget Summit provides a two-day industry perspective on the current state of the widget economy. Attendees will learn how to evaluate possible distribution channels and its unique audiences, explore areas of rapid growth and experimentation, and learn how to implement best practices of the widget industry. Our two-day intensive will prepare your team with the best business, developer, and partner knowledge needed to engage the emerging widget ecosystem.
