We Media vs. Web 2.0

There are two conferences going on today – We Media and Web 2.0.  Both are sold out, have great speakers, and have generated lots of “pre-conference” buzz (whatever that means.)

They are radically difference conferences addressing the same thing from two totally different perspectives.  The schedules and the agendas tell the complete story.  We Media – all media, all day long – in New York.  Web 2.0 – all tech, for a couple of days – in San Francisco.

Ten years later, the bifurcation on the Internet between tech and media seems as big as ever.  I wonder which party is going to be more fun (actually, I don’t, but it was a good closing line.)

    Actually, I was at WeMedia today (and spoke on a panel – http://www.rklau.com/tins/archives/2005/10/05/wemedia_we_invest.php). I have an early meeting in Boston tomorrow so I headed out at the end of the day. I’m enjoying Web 2.0 vicariously through the power of – well – Web 2.0.
