Mesh conference

That's the title of my Slaw post for today. It reads as follows: I attended day 1 of the Mesh conference yesterday. (I had a conflict for today - but a colleague is going in my place.) Some video from the event is already on the Mesh site.

The highlight for me was the keynote by Mike Masnick of Techdirt. Anyone interested in changing business models and how to conduct business on the web should follow the Techdirt blog. Microsoft had one of their Surface devices there. If you ever get a chance to play with one, you should. Multitouch technology will be included in Windows 7. That could lead to some interesting things - and may actually breathe life into tablet computers.

Many people in the audience for the keynote sessions sent their questions via Twitter rather than walking up to a microphone. One interesting result was that it enabled the moderator to combine the essence of more than 1 question together.
