Barry Blogging PubCon Vegas 2007Last night I booked the flight to PubCon in Vegas. Yes, way early, but the price via EWR to LAS on Continental wasn’t bad – so I jumped at it. I made the mistake of not booking early enough for SES San Jose, and unfortunately, Tamar and I won’t be going to that. So I was eager to get my flight booked for PubCon in November.

I am sure I will regret not going to SES San Jose… Just like when I bailed on PubCon last year, I totally regretted it. The last time I live blogged a PubCon was almost two-years ago. That PubCon was a lot of fun, since Yahoo invited me to Hugh Hefner’s Vegas Suit in Palms Hotel and it was very all laid back.

So, in short, bailing on SES San Jose. Hitting SMX East and PubCon Vegas.

Not forget, SMX East is in October (right near Yom Kippur), good thing I am in NY.

    Hey Barry, I hear ya …

    I missed SJ last year as well and regretted it (was the start of the big paid link “crackdown”)
    also I remember the yr before I was forced to pay almost double to fly in from Europe just because I booked “so early” (50+ days ahead!)

    so – book early is a great thing … got my SJ, WMW Vegas booked for 2 weeks already :)

    cheers,christoph

    I totally understand; the airfares nowadays are getting to be outrageous. Perhaps you can pick up a sponsor and get them to pay for the airfare? You could wear their tshirt all week. That’s got to be good enough to cover travel expenses, right?

    Or maybe if you and Tamar get on Greyhound now you might make it there by the last day of the conference?

    Seriously, though, I hope you plan on making sure there’s plenty of live blogging going on, right?
