Darn, this was a long day – and perhaps, somewhat disappointing, at least based on the Internet Marketing conference and Diggnation party I attended tonight.

The problem with the IMC Conference is there was no internet connectivity and I could not hear what anyone was saying who was speaking – but there were some good networking opportunities – I just found I could not stay very long (an hour or two); a longer description came from WebAnalyticsBook in a post titled the Mobile Internet Marketing Conference.
Diggnation party was packed and I waited about 45 minutes to get in – but once I was in – I was just one in a few thousand people in dark, noisy space – I stayed a little more than an hour then left and came home.
While both events sounded really good, I ended up finding both somewhat different, and less, than I expected – but still worth attending. Here’s a movie of both events I made today.
