Running from session to session today. This is cray-cray.

Nothing is working right now. The wifi is slow, so is WordPress and my computer. Argh. On the other hand, this is the first all female panel I’ve seen at this show. Happiness is me.
Last day, first session. Still without a bagel. Last night, I was assaulted by hail. New York, you are on notice.
However, we’ve got a couple of sessions today that I picked because they just sounded so different than the norm and I’m actually excited about them. This is the first of them and here’s the panel.
Jeff Ferguson, CEO, Fang Digital
Paul Szymanski, Search Engine Marketing Manager, Sony Music Entertainment
Clayburn Griffin, Social Media Director, Promediacorp, @Clayburn
* Avi Wilensky is sitting in for the Q&A portion, @aviw

End of the day. I’m dragging. I’ll bet it’s because I don’t have a bagel. But what I do have is one more session and hopefully just enough battery to cover it.

Greg Jarboe, President & Co-Founder, SEO-PR
Jason Yormark, VP of Marketing and Social Media, Strategies 360

There were cream puffs for dessert today. You know what there wasn’t? Bagels.
Yes, this is a thing now.
But onwards and upwards, ladies and gents. It’s time for more analytics. In case you didn’t get enough Matthew Bailey yesterday (and really, who could get enough Matt Bailey?), he’s here with moderator Mark Jackson, SEW Expert & President/CEO, VIZION Interactive and fellow speakers Ulli Muenker, Search Marketing Manager, Bloomberg / BusinessWeek and Jim Yu, Founder & CEO, BrightEdge. We’re talking SEO metrics that don’t suck.

It’s Day Two of SES New York. We’re here in our first session today the opening session of the Focus Latino track. This introduction and keynote will lead off a whole day of Hispanic and Latin focused products and issues. Some of it I’ll be covering so stick around.
So it’s 6:30 am back home in California but it’s 9:30 here and we’re ready to start. The coffee remains decent, the power remains non-existent and no one has given me a bagel. Why? I guess because they like living on the edge.
