    I’ll be there! I know Loren, Carsten and Jessica will be there from the SEJ crew, too. If you see a young redhead, introduce yourself… that’d be me. πŸ™‚

    Sujan – Nice post btw. I definitely agree with the majority of those picks. Unfortunately, viral marketing sessions haven’t lived up to my expectations in the past, but I’m really excited about that panel and think they can bring a fresh, experienced voice to the subject.

    I have found the biggest determining factor of a quality session to be the speaker, not the title. I’d almost always attend a session with top notch presenters, as there is a much better chance of getting valuable insight and actionable tips.

    I’m very interested in the viral search success and link baiting session . Hopfully I can get some of my questions answered in reference to link building via article distribution. I’m worried about duplicate content.

    I was at the uninversal & vertical blended search session – best nugget of information I didnt personally know: Views and Comments on video content matter. Google didnt say the “matter” i think he said something like “pay attention to views and comments.”

    Soooo who else is going to stop by??? We’ve had a great turn out so far for the event and it’s been SO much fun! It’s been great to catch up with some of you.

    I got to meet Matt Cutts, getting ready to go meet up with Adam Lasnik, met up with some Search Engine Watch folks, but nothing from SEJ yet. Still waiting to catch up with SEJ … so stop by our TLA booth!
