I am very excited, I leave in the morning. This is my first conference so I am not totally sure what to expect.
I've only been to London once but it is a great place and I can't wait for the wandering around the city. Slipping into pubs for good fare and good drink.
Not so many hours from now the trek begins.

|If your going add your name: and what you are looking forward too. |
This is my second conference. Most of all I`m looking forward to meeting people who are working in the same field as myself. There are only a few of us in Norway and I`m eager to share some experiences with some of you other guys from other parts of the world. This is also an opportunity to build lasting relations so that we in the future can cooperate on projects that requires different language skills and knowledge of local search behaviour in the population.

My 3rd. one too. London was great the first time. Irvine was awesome and I had never been to the US before. London's gonna blow the first two away this time!
I expect to catch up on all the relationships that were built the first two times, and get to know some of all the members and mods that I never met before.
I also expect to get a few SEO tips, tricks and jawdropping work-a-rounds with me home to work on for months.
I believe this conference will give anyone attending so much info and knowledge about SEO and webmaster related info that it will take months to digest. It did the last two times.
Look forward to this folks, I kid you not.
See you all in a few days :)
Oh yeah, then I'll collect all the beers that people owe me ;)

All booked in for Friday night at The Thistle, company expense card has been authorised to buy any PR9 webmasters as much alcohol as they can drink :)
Only kidding, on a serious note, shall be at the hotel from 7pm Friday onwards, probably lurking in the lobby, feel free to pop by.

We thought of skipping name tags and just having people wear their PR on their forehead.
When we were trying to figure out what we needed to charge to cover expenses, someone suggested $100 per PR point. We threw that idea away because most would get in for free ;-)
When we were looking for new names, a couple mods came up with 'Club PR0'.
Looking foreward to meeting new folks and getting reacquainted with old ones. This is going to be a good time.

On another note, have been in meetings with Overture and also been chatting to Espotting and GoToast, looks like these guys are REALLY looking fwd to Saturday.
Although NO Free alcohol for them,

I'm looking forward to meeting the crew that were at the first conference again and seeing how things have moved on.
This is our opportunity to build business relationships and to look for new opportunities.
Roll on Saturday.

I have no idea what to expect- but it should be great fun, hopefully. I'm after tips on how to make money from a content-driven site so please have some tips ready for me :)
With my dreadful sense of direction I am setting off from Cheshire, England at 8am so I should be in the big smoke by about 1:30pm ;)
Be great to finally put to names to faces! I hope the Google Guy/Girl will bring the latest Algo code on a floppy as requested....and boy, I really hope they serve some good whisky....

Whatever do you mean by that Laz.. :)

>> Whatever do you mean by that Laz..
No offense, i am sure you hook some one up too ;)
We should have 2 beutiful girls standing outside the pub handing out leaflets :) Deja Vu
| 11:12 am on Oct 9, 2002 (gmt 0)|
Yeah sadly Angel and Lara won't be attending this event...
| 11:14 am on Oct 9, 2002 (gmt 0)|
Too bad... ;)
| 11:36 am on Oct 9, 2002 (gmt 0)|
looking forward to this one, my first website was only just up and running by pubcon1 and i had no idea what anyone was talking about.
what a difference a year makes!
hoping to get some ideas from the affiliate gurus, a new area for me but i'm obsessed, just a few sales was all it took to be hooked - its stronger than crack :)
maybe hook up with people who may want to be involved in a project or two.
but mostly to interact with a bunch of people who share my obsession ... and understand! those who have shared the pleasure or pain of a major update:);) those who await the new moon with trepidation ....

picking up another free pen from PT
the one i got at barcon is the best giveaway pen i've ever had, i haven't yet lost it and still use it daily
| 12:06 pm on Oct 9, 2002 (gmt 0)|
I have to agree on that one.
Jim from Position Tech went all out on them pens, good quality, i still use mine now around the office at home. don't remember how i got out of Pubcon still standing, never mind waking up one day with the pen in the UK.

My first one too, I also have no idea what to expect. I'm pretty excited and, to be honest, just a little bit nervous about the whole thing.
Mainly I want to listen and learn. I've been so impressed with what I've read here over the last few months I just HAD to come. I've discovered a world I never knew existed here, its fascinating. Still new to SEO, so I've no doubt that almost everything anybody says will open up new horizons for me, and fully expect the majority to be over my head.
I'm excited about affiliate marketing now and want to learn more and hopefully escape the regimentation of the 9-5 rat race in the process. I'm hoping this conference will speed me on my way.
Its going to be interesting to see what everybody looks like - I'm sure that none of you look _anything_ like I imagine you. Except Nick_W because he used have a picture of himself in his profile :)
| 12:50 pm on Oct 9, 2002 (gmt 0)|
Yeah, they told me to take it down as it was scaring people ;)
| 12:51 pm on Oct 9, 2002 (gmt 0)|
Unfortunatly, Tim won't be coming. Stephen Baker will be.
>drink with Brett
I probably won't drink along with many others. (note, there will be plenty of tea and coffee available)
| 12:59 pm on Oct 9, 2002 (gmt 0)|
>plenty of tea and coffee available
Believe me, you'll need it. Otherwise if you drink too much alcohol, we'll pick your brain, grap your ideas and one month later, you'll never know what hit you ;)
The knowledge floating around on Saturday is so overwhelming. Would be a shame to drown it, if you know what I mean?

For some unknown reason, I can drink gallons of Whisky and feel as sober as a judge - but one touch of Wine on my lips and I'm fast asleep ;)
Anyway - I will need to keep a straight head so I can scribble notes...
| 1:07 pm on Oct 9, 2002 (gmt 0)|
I see a divide here: The boozers and the big girls blouses ;)
| 1:10 pm on Oct 9, 2002 (gmt 0)|
See you at the bar Nick.
| 1:18 pm on Oct 9, 2002 (gmt 0)|
Unfortunatly, Tim won't be coming. Stephen Baker will be.
Ah he's also welcome ;), he's never called me spammer, i think i had an interesting chat about spam with him though.
>>I probably won't drink along with many others. (note, there will be plenty of tea and coffee available)
i hope Coke is also available ;)

Hehe, just checked your profile, Irish huh? Afraid I've been too long in Denmark to appreciate a Guiness but, I'll go a few Stellas/Becks ;)
| 1:23 pm on Oct 9, 2002 (gmt 0)|
In Ireland - but not Irish, although seem to have picked up their drinking habits.... confident I can booze without giving away any company secrets! :)
