The mesh conference organizers have introduced a new event segment for “entrepreneurs, start-ups and do-gooders with great stories“. Submit your written pitch here and you may get the chance to present your idea/venture for five minutes on stage at the conference. Three people per conference day. Neat idea. Before you submit your elevator pitch, you could test it first with this web service.
Clicking through some pages on ITWorldCanada.com, I came across the website for Syndicate Canada conference, a new event around blogging, RSS, podcasting and other things related to content syndication. It is scheduled for June 14 to 15 in Toronto. This is the Canadian version of Syndicate conference in New York, which is scheduled for May 16/17 and has a number of the usual high profile bloggers plus a whole bunch more. Sounds like a great conference. No details about program and speakers for Canada yet.
With regard to conference program and speakers, it is going to be interesting to see how they will be able to differentiate Syndicate Canada from the Toronto Blogging/Web 2.0 Conference that Michael McDerment, Mark Evans, Mathew Ingram and Rob Hyndman are planning for May 8/9. But it is nice to see so much activity around blogging in Toronto all of a sudden.
