    Las Vegas
    View from the Wynn

    I finally arrived in Las Vegas and bumped into Detlev Johnson while checking in to the Wynn. He showed me his cool new Blackberry Curve.  It’s a cool phone but I don’t have Tmobile and am not sure about switching networks again.  He has a pet name for it that really fits, but I can’t mention it here. If you see me at the conference, ask. Better yet, ask Detlev.

    There’s quite a schedule for day one of WebmasterWorld’s Pubcon conference here in Las Vegas. To blog all the concurrent sessions with any degree of quality is near impossible, but here is the array of sessions I hope to sit in on for day one. And from the looks of it, apparently I am a closet Jake Baillie junkie.

    • 10:00am – Duplicate Content Issues Duplicate Content Issues. Rahul Lahiri, Derrick Wheeler, Evan Roseman, Priyank Garg

    How many sessions will I actually be able to cover? We’ll see. One thing is for sure, we’ll have a lot of photos and a few video interviews.  With Mike and Jolina at SES in Chicago, there’s a lot of blogging going on at TopRank, so be sure and stay tuned!
