Want to take part in the We Media 2006 conference?

BBC is co-sponsoring the We Media 2006 conference, which takes place in London next month.

It’s $795 a ticket, but if that’s not for you I can offer you an alternative:

We’re looking for some clued-up people to take part in a session at the conference in the afternoon on May 3rd.

Basically we want you to sit at tables with attendees and talk about how you use digital media – in particular blogging, downloading tv via bittorrent/p2p*, sharing video via YouTube/etc, online gaming, using sites like Digg, tech.memeorandum etc.

In return we’ll feed you lunch, pay you some money and let you in for the last two sessions of the We Media 2006 Conference. Not bad, eh?

You’ll even get the opportunity to be in the audience for a live broadcast of the BBC’s new interactive World Service radio programme “World Have Your Say” which is partly produced by my good friend Kevin Anderson. It’s going to broadcast live from the conference to a global audience!

If you are interested then please download and fill out this short form (now removed, event’s finished). When you’ve completed it, please send it to Morag – whose email address and contact details are at the bottom of the form.

We’ll look through the docs and we’ll get in touch. Please feel free to pass on this request to anybody that you feel might be interested.

* = Don’t worry if this includes downloading copyright-restricted TV. I think the BBC realises that people downloading TV programmes via bit torrent are actually trailblazing a future usage trend and there is much to be learned from their usage patterns. At this kind of event people are going to intrigued rather than concerned to hear about your use.

  1. Travel to come speak and get lunch and two free sessions? eh?

    Why not just do BarCampLondon (finally) on the weekend leading up to it for those that can’t afford it.

    I think that would be brilliant. ;)

    If we weren’t in Bangalore, we would even come to that.

  2. Please let me know if you’re looking for a author for your weblog. You have some really good articles and I think I would be a good asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d absolutely love to write some content for your blog in exchange for a link back to mine. Please blast me an e-mail if interested. Regards!|Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and all. But imagine if you added some great photos or videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and video clips, this site could undeniably be one of the most beneficial in its field. Superb blog!|Fascinating blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere? A theme like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make my blog shine. Please let me know where you got your design. Bless you|Hey would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with? I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a difficult time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!|Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your post seem to be running off the screen in Ie. I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know. The style and design look great though! Hope you get the problem fixed soon. Kudos|With havin so much content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright violation? My site has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my agreement. Do you know any techniques to help stop content from being stolen? I’d truly appreciate it.|Have you ever thought about publishing an ebook or guest authoring on other blogs? I have a blog based upon on the same topics you discuss and would love to have you share some stories/information. I know my audience would appreciate your work. If you are even remotely interested, feel free to shoot me an e-mail.|Hey! Someone in my Myspace group shared this website with us so I came to check it out. I’m definitely enjoying the information. I’m bookmarking and will be tweeting this to my followers! Excellent blog and excellent design and style.|Great blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any ideas? Kudos!|My programmer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on several websites for about a year and am concerned about switching to another platform. I have heard fantastic things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into it? Any kind of help would be really appreciated!|Does your website have a contact page? I’m having a tough time locating it but, I’d like to send you an email. I’ve got some ideas for your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great blog and I look forward to seeing it grow over time.|It’s a shame you don’t have a donate button! I’d definitely donate to this outstanding blog! I suppose for now i’ll settle for bookmarking and adding your RSS feed to my Google account. I look forward to new updates and will talk about this site with my Facebook group. Chat soon!|Greetings from Colorado! I’m bored to tears at work so I decided to check out your site on my iphone during lunch break. I really like the info you present here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home. I’m shocked at how quick your blog loaded on my mobile .. I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyhow, superb blog!|Howdy! I know this is kinda off topic however I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest authoring a blog article or vice-versa? My site discusses a lot of the same subjects as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from each other. If you might be interested feel free to send me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you! Awesome blog by the way!
