Web 2.0 Expo starts in San Francisco on April 22. It's the biggest Web 2.0 show there is, and Webware will be there in force, scouring the show looking for new companies, interviewing the architects of Web 2.0 companies, and celebrating the winners of the Webware 100, which we announce on April 21, right before the show opens. (Webware is a partner of the Web 2.0 Expo.)
As I've posted before, you can get a free exhibit pass, which also gets you in to the keynotes, by using the code "websf08pb6" at the Expo registration page.
But the Web 2.0 Expo is more than exhibit booths and talking heads (as fascinating as both are). There are also dozens of how-to workshops, strategy sessions, and behind-the-scenes presentations on Web 2.0 topics (see schedule). The full Web 2.0 Expo conference pass is valued at $1,695, but we have two to give away. Here's how to grab one for yourself:
Tell us what we did wrong in the Webware 100 this year.
Really, we want to know. While we increased the voting from the 2007 Webware 100 four-fold, from 490,000 votes cast in 2007 to more than 1.9 million this year, we know there's room for improvement. So let us have it. Enter your ideas in the talkback below before 6:00 p.m. PDT on Monday, April 14. Josh and I will pick the best ideas. In the case of multiple versions of an idea we like, the earliest entry will win. (So don't just rip off another idea that's already been entered.)
Use the feedback system below to tell us what you'd like to see. You'll have to register to post a comment, if you haven't already. Since we'll need to reach you if you're a winner, please be sure your e-mail address is current. If you've been registered on the CNET network for a while, use this form to check your e-mail address.
Best two entries get the passes. Good luck!
Also: Join us in the exhibit hall on Thursday, April 24 at 4:30 p.m. during the Web 2.0 Expo Booth Crawl. We'll be celebrating the Webware 100 winners then. And there will be beer. As in free.
