Re: [web-49] anyone going to, or have thoughts on, AAG in Las Vegas?

I haven't been able to find anyone from Google who is going this year.
We won't be doing a big panel presentation again, I don't think. It
was a great conference, sorta like AGU, lots of interested people,
some with skills necessary for neo-geo type work. But that wasn't the
focus, as I understood it. It was more of an academic oriented
conference, much like AGU, but with even less Web 2.0 going on. I
couldn't say this year.
