Joe Morin has posted the official party list for Search Engine Strategies (SES) 2006 in San Jose. That includes Google Dance V at the Googleplex, which all SES attendees are invited to. It’s a great chance to see the Googleplex and enjoy music, food, drinks, and talking with Googlers.
At the conference itself, Danny Sullivan and Google CEO Eric Schmidt will sit down to talk at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, August 9th:
Google CEO Eric Schmidt talks with Search Engine Watch editor-in-chief Danny Sullivan about how the search leader is growing and dealing with challenges and issues in search.
Then at 11 a.m. that same day, I’ll be on a “Speaking Unofficially: Search Engine Bloggers” panel. Those are fun because it’s pretty much all Q&A, so I can leave my PowerPoint at the door. I may do some other sessions too, but San Jose is a great time to rotate in new Googlers and let them soak in the experience of chatting with webmasters, advertisers, publishers, and users.
I love the San Jose conference because I can talk to webmasters until late, then drive home and sleep in my own bed. Who here will be at SES San Jose? I’d love to meet a few new folks this year.
Update: This always happens. As I get closer to a conference, I’m like “Oh, I forgot I promised I’d be on that panel.” So I’m planning on being at the Duplicate Content & Multiple Site Issues session on Tuesday, August 8th, at 11:15 a.m. On the plus side, I’ll just be there for Q&A (no PowerPoint again! woohoo!), and I’ll get to sit next to Tim Converse, the Yahoo! analogue of my webspam self. On the minus side, I won’t get to listen in on the Blog & Feed Search SEO or Search Arbitrage panels.
