Schedule for Ad:Tech San Francisco 2007
Okay, kids. Now that I am finally (almost) recovered from Search Engine Strategies New York and the calluses on my fingers are starting to heal, Susan thought it would be Really Funny to ship me off to next week’s Ad:Tech San Francisco to do it all over again. Isn’t she kind? [I really like having our office to myself.--Susan]
Of course, I’m not the only Bruce Clay employee who will be in town. Several of our finest Search Engine Optimization Analysts will be making the journey as well, and Bruce will be moderating Thursday’s SEO: Advanced Q&A panel with panelists Aaron D’Souza from Google and Sandor Marik from CondeNet. If you didn’t get all of your optimization questions answered during New York’s Organic Listings Forum, here’s your chance for a repeat attempt.
Because Susan’s day would not be complete without seeing me in physical pain, I will of course be live blogging throughout the conference.
Here’s a tentative list of the sessions I’ll be covering while in San Francisco. If you’ll be there, please come find me and bring coffee.

So, what do you think (about the schedule, not my dying)? Sound fun?
Maybe once I get finished with San Francisco’s blogging adventure Susan will let me stay in the office for more than a week at a time before kicking me out again. She sure is temperamental. One joke about her outfit choices and I’m gone. [If you're good, I'll let you stick around until Search Marketing Expo in June. If not, I'm packing you off to Siberia, they must need something live blogged there... --Susan] – I hate you.
