@media 2006

@media 2005 was a fantastic conference, and I had a really great time during my three days in London. It was actually a bit overwhelming. If you were there, I hope you enjoyed it too. If you couldn’t make it last year, make sure you don’t miss @media 2006 in June.

I’ll be there, and I am very happy to let you know that this year I won’t just be in the audience. I’ll be joining Andy Budd and Dave Shea in the CSS3: Fact or Fiction? panel on day two. I’m really looking forward to that, and I’m sure it will be an interesting discussion.

Reading the other names on the list of speakers makes me wonder what I am doing on that list. *gulp*

Register now and make your travel arrangements early. This one’s going to be super!

  1. what you’re doing there? providing the good looks, of course. i’m the comedy sidekick. :)

  2. It’s definitely looking like an excellent conference. Shame about the streamed approach though - I don’t relish trying to decide between Tantek and Robin, or Dave and Andy etc. for that matter. :-(

  3. (I’ve already mailed you on this - so I’m saying that here too!)

  4. Fantastic news Roger, I had money on it being 3 or 4 days long rather than 2 tracks but what the heck? Can’t wait to start begging at work tomorrow :p

  5. 3 or 4 days! I think their would be fatalities if the evening drinks where anything to go by last time. :-)

    Congrats on the slot - Although I think Patrick is getting you confused with Veerle :-)

  6. nah, roger is like the Ace Rimmer of web standards…”what a guy!” ;)

  7. On a similar note a quick site for anyone like me who got a little overenthusiastic all of a sudden:


    I’ve set up a feed agregator to scour well know trouble spots (ie. Lots of blogs of web designers and such like) and bring it all together. Get a feel for the buzz if you like. Hope it’s some use to everyone.

    LOL @ Ace Rimmer, what a guy.

  9. I’m slowly tracking down all the blog posts referencing @media 2006 and expressing my eagerness to get there one way or another. Too many great web developers will be there for me to make an excuse ‘not’ to go.

    Roger, good luck speaking. I hope they put you guys up in a penthouse :)

    patrick: No no, you’ve got it wrong. I’m there to do a Swedish chef impersonation. Ace Rimmer. LOL ;-).

    Ian: Yeah I’m not so sure I like the two track thing either. I don’t want to miss anything!

    gareth: Maybe not fatalities, but definitely headaches.

    Dustin: I hope you can make it. It would be great to meet. But you and your identical twin Colly need to come up with something that will help people tell you apart ;-).

  11. Seeing you on the list was not surprise for me… Too much quality thoughts from you, to stay unnoticed. Anyway, I think you’ll be just fine up there. After all, now they forced you to come no matter what. No excuses accepted : ))

  12. Just send the Purchase Order Form for tickets for my three Junior developers and me to go there. Was great fun last year and I hope to get there. I do promise this time not to ask to many annoying questions :)

  13. Congrats Roger!
    I’m really glad that you get the opportunity to speak at such an event!

  14. It sounds great! Wish I could be there. Congratulations on joining this fantastic cast!

  15. Oh, like Dustin, if you need any help on that panel (it really needs to be a four person panel, doesn’t it?), you just let me know. ;)

  16. I’d love to go, sounds ace! …and would be if it wasn’t World Cup year, England play on the 15th, no way I’d be concentrating!

    Hope you’ll be there next year Roger; I’m putting it in my calendar now. :-)

  17. I am eagerly awaiting your Swedish chef impression Roger and I’m relying on Patrick H Lauke’s talent to photo document it for history :-)

  18. Oh, and yes, come earlier and we’ll check those coffee places I sent you information about earlier :-)

    Veerle: I’d better remember to bring that chef’s hat then :-D.

    Chris: Excellent idea!

    I so wish I could get my company to pay for me to see this.

  21. Too cool - you were on my @media2005’s wishlist of speakers for 2006 :)

  22. Just got confirmation that my company are paying for me to attend again this year. Last year was fantastic and this year looks even better, although trying to decide between streams could be tricky.

  23. Roger - congratulations! very well-deserved to be in such good company! I’m sure it will be fantastic…

    Marc: I hope you manage to convince your boss that going to @media would be very beneficial.

    David: Thanks!

    Alex: Great!

    Derek: Thanks :-). I see you’re not on the speaker list. Any plans on coming over anyway? There are still a few “TBC” slots on the schedule ;-).

  25. Wireless World: New roaming standard? CHICAGO, Jan. 20 (UPI) — Consumer interest in mobile Internet access continues to climb, and computer industry leaders including Intel Corp. and others are now calling for the creation of a global roaming standard for wireless, experts tell United Press International’s Wireless World.

    Current standards like WiFi and WiMax cannot take wireless to the next level — international roaming — because convergence of technologies is creating new demands on networks. By Gene Koprowski

  26. Hope to see you in London, got confirmed last week that I am going. Will be really great as I was not there last year, someone else got my ticket then, grrrr.
