It's 35 degrees and windy in New York right now, but I have the good fortune to be packing up my bags and heading for Miami. No, it's not a vacation. I'm going to the Future of Web Apps conference, hosted by U.K.-based media and events firm Carsonified. I'll be there through Saturday.
Among the featured attractions at FOWA Miami are a wine tasting, an evening soiree at a South Beach nightclub, an afternoon "beach party," and a tug-of-war competition. Yeah, I'm pretty excited for that, even though I plan to politely decline to participate in tug-of-war.
But I'll also be hunting for buzz about hot social media topics like Google's OpenSocial and why it's not exactly speeding out of the gates, the possibilities for location-based networking, and whether Twitter will ever be anything more than a messaging tool for the figurative offspring of Silicon Valley.
Talk to you from the 305!
