The Advance Guard got involved with the team putting on this event and they asked me if I could attend. The entire event is being streamed live and is part of the official line up of Internet Week New York events. I'm sure I'll be tweeting throughout the day or you can follow the official Twitter stream by following along with the hash tag of #NF09 or on the twitter account @TheThirdAct.
When I watched the highlight video from last year (shown below) I remember thinking, "wow how have I not heard of this before?" Then I found out that it was the first year and that is probably why I missed it.
It goes without saying that I'm sure that I'm going to walk away today with a head full of ideas and a ball of creative energy. It'll certainly keep me jazzed about Emily Explains It if nothing else. *grin* Plus I get to spend some time tonight with my good buddy Dan Patterson so that is the icing on the cake.
Since I know the event is at full capacity be sure to watch the entire event live online. They will be taking questions via twitter and with the diversity of speakers I can only imagine the topics that will be covered. If you are attending the event in person be sure to say hello.
