SES San Jose '08 Roundtable Coverage Schedule

Aug 11, 2008 - 11:37 am 0 by

ses-sanjose-07.pngIt is that time of the year, where Search Engine Strategies (SES) comes to San Jose, California. SES San Jose 2008 is just one week away, starting Monday, August 18th. SES is offering up over 70 sessions and we hope to cover many of them.

Tamar and I won't be attending this event, this is the first time in years that I won't be going. We have been covering SEO/SEM conferences in detail since 2003, and we have covered SES San Jose in 2004, 2005, 2006 and 2007. But don't worry, we will have extensive coverage of SES San Jose 2008, thanks to our wonderful volunteers.

The volunteer Roundtable conference coverage team for San Jose 2008 include Keri Morgret of Morgret Designs, Sheara Wilensky & Avi Wilensky of Promedia Corp, Carolyn Shelby aka Cshel, Chris Boggs of Brulant, and Dave Rohrer . Brian Ussery aka Beu, was planning on covering sessions but was unable to make it last minute (he is doing well, thankfully). All the contributors have experience live blogging sessions, so I am very confident their contributions will be excellent. A big thank you to all the contributors! If you want to help with the coverage, please let us know.
