Webdirections and McFarlane Prize: Midnight tonight

MIDNIGHT TONIGHT: Maxine sent this to me a couple of days ago. I forgot until now. So you had best put your skates on – there’s already over 500 Web 2.0 types signed up. And I think they are all on my facebook friends list :p (jus’ joshin’):

1. Discount pricing for Web Directions South ending
If you work in the web industry, you’ve got until Friday at midnight to get tickets to the event of the year here in Sydney for just $895.
The full program is now available, and we genuinely believe this is the best lineup of speakers and subjects we’ve ever had.
Additionally this year sponsorship and the Web Directions Expo mean that the opening and closing night parties will be bigger and better than ever.
We hope you can join what will be well over 500 of your peers from all over Australia, and right around the world in Sydney at the end of September, for what will be an exciting, educational, inspiring week of workshops and conference this year at Web Directions.
2. McFarlane Prize nominations closing
Nominations for the McFarlane Prize also close this Friday at midnight. For more details see the prize’s site.

Don’t forget I’m talking on Mobile Phones and Social Networks – Oi! Who muttered “just Twitter?” No! – and a full day extra workshop on building social networks. Actually the thought of a day or three of me might be enough to drive you to Queensland blogging conference on the 28th September instead. šŸ˜› They have a cute badge, we don’t. *cries*


So, will I see you in Sydney for WD07? Or you traipsing up to God’s country?
