Top 5 Things I want to hear at Gnomedex 10

August 20, 2010

Today kickstarts Gnomedex 10 – the annual confab put on by local entrepreneur and CNN Tech correspondent Chris Pirillo.  Kind of like TED but more tech, Gnomedex has been an annual must-attend event for years and this may be the last one.  Alas, I made plans to take my son to the Oregon International Airshow this weekend and won’t be able to attend.  So here are the Top 5 things I would want to hear at Gnomedex:

  1. Someone ask Tom Nugent, co-founder of LaserMotive if he’s related to Ted Nugent.  I’m certain someone will do this.  I’m also pretty certain a laser-powered Skynet drone will suddenly appear and attack the person who asks him.
  2. Matt Inman, because I eat The Oatmeal every day (e.g. Today, Yesterday, and Tomorrow).
  3. Anyone who presents after Violet Blue. Poor Jason Barger – something tells me that the audience is going to need a smoke break after Violet’s presentation.
  4. Barbara Evans uncork a bottle of Domaine Romanée-Conti on-stage and pour half out for her “Homies” to the horror of the audience.
  5. Charles Brennick give away an Xbox 360/Kinect bundle.  Charles runs Interconnection.org, a non-profit organization that refurbs PCs for donation to underserved communities worldwide. (Disclaimer: I am on the Board of Directors for IC)

Here’s to hoping this isn’t the last Gnomedex so I can plan better.  Can’t attend in person like me?  Check out Gnomedex online at www.gnomedex.com.  Congratulations to Chris and have a great show.

Update: Jeff Barr has some great mind maps of the sessions at Gnomedex here.

    Sorry you can’t be at Gnomedex! Will you be speaking/boothening at PAX?
