Northern Voice Keynote Speaker announced

Matt [cropped]Tickets are almost sold out to this year’s Northern Voice conference. It was just announced that Matt Mullenweg, creator of the WordPress system that I use to power this site, will be giving the keynote at the conference…although there hasn’t been a post about Matt on the conference site, he blogged about it on his so it must be true.

I’ve had the chance to see Matt speak twice now: at SXSW last year and at WordCamp last summer. Like Larry Lessig, he knows how to give a great presentation. He also happens to have one of the coolest personal domain names : although it sounds like it was a bit of an ordeal to acquire. Someone beat me to the one I should have gotten.

This year’s conference is shaping up to be a great one! See you at the Waldorf for the opening party!

    Wow, this is very cool! :) I’ll try to keep my fanboy instincts in check. ;-)

  2. bitter! I’m so bitter! It’s RRSP season so for anyone in the finance industry, no time for conferences. And now to find out the Matt’s going to be doing the keynote…. arrrrgh! Will you or anyone be liveblogging?

    Too bad you won’t be there….you should at least come out to the dinner thing at the Waldorf on Thursday!

    I won’t be liveblogging it but I’m sure someone will be…if not multiple people.
