Thanks for my first experience at PubCon. It is what I expected and more. The orginization of this informative event was great and benefitial to my business. The people are great and the Social Networking is definitely one of the key elements of this event.
It is not about everyone giving out secrets because each industry is different, but the exchange of relevant knowledge in a panel discussion or a one on one conversation with a conference attendee. The nuggets are there to understand and piece together for any web industry.
Definitely a must attend event for those serious in the industry. I will be Leaving Orlando in the morning.
Great Cliffs notes! Thanks for the summary and pics.
Anyone want to share any in depth info? In particular ... "Most talked about presentations: DaveN and SeGuru. " and "Matt Cutts said that Google is trying over a half dozen scoring techniques a month." and "Most requested presentations thus far: Dan Boberg, Christine Churchill, and Tedster. "
Thanks to everyone who "shared a nugget". Thanks Brett as well - you looked so calm and collected, as if the whole thing was a breeze.

I will be posting around looking for a few more answers on building out our google pages and inktomi feeds.
I started to get sick the second day of the conference... Left to go home around noon with a fever. I was sitting right in front of the giant presentation screen and it was starting to make me swoon. Thought it would be wise for me to head out before I threw up in front of 500 people.
Im mostly better now. :)
This was my first PubCon and I’ll definitely be back. PubCon is unique in the conference world. Sure, it had sessions and formal speeches like other Internet marketing conferences, and yes, it even has a party in the Pub, but PubCon is more. Unlike most conferences that are “generic” and impersonal, the atmosphere at PubCon was akin to being at a family reunion or a gathering of friends. You could feel the genuine admiration and mutual respect people felt for each other. It was a great experience.
I also want to thank Brett, Mike Grehan, Anne Kennedy and everyone else who attended PubCon for making my birthday so special. I was truly touched by the cake, the song, and the many birthday wishes. You guys are great. You made it a birthday I’ll never forget.
Scene 1: Late Friday evening. A crowd of mildly to moderately intoxicated technotypes, standing on each side of the red carpet, forming a sort of human bulkhead through which a steady stream of intense looking men in black accompanied by women wearing their favorite designer invitations to sex traveled to the doors of the swinger's party taking place in the Clarion hotel that evening.
Scene 2. Brett Tabke sauntering up the red carpet, amidst the swingers, cradling what is obviously a room service dinner for two in his arms: 2 large Cokes from McDonalds with a bag of burgers and fries.
Some men just know how to treat their women.
