Coverage Schedule for SES NY 2008
Hi all. It’s liveblogging schedule posting time. (Didn’t we just do this? I could have sworn there was a conference not too long ago and we did the whole liveblogging thing already? Maybe I dreamt it?)
This time around things will be a bit different because we’ll be traveling and running the booth without our fearless leader Bruce (sad face), who is in Sydney
gallivanting around and riding kangaroos speaking at Ad:Tech and gearing up to teach our Australian SEO course.
But fear not, there will be no shortage of Bruce Clay folk in attendance at SES. Robert Esparza (VP of Operations at Bruce Clay & Susan’s big brother) will be playing the role of Mini Bruce and you can expect lots of fine analysts to be present to answer all of your SEO-related questions.
And to bring some snark to the mix, I will of course be liveblogging all the crazy session mayhem. Here’s where you can find me.
