Bill French speaking at EntConnect in four weeks
One of the regular attendees and speakers at the EntConnect Entrepreneurial Connections Conference has been Bill French. Bill was one of the inventors of LapLink (yes, that Laplink!) He also created one of the early GUI WYSIWYG editors for web site creation (QuickSite.) In recent years he was co-inventor of the MyST Technology Partners, Inc. MyST Blogsite blog site management software and service, a high-end (costs more than I earn in a month) product and subscription service that makes it easy for busy businesses to quickly and effectively establish and maintain a high-visibility profile on the Web with minimal effort on their part. Bill has a wealth of knowledge and experience with the Web and technology in general and is always on hand to share it with us at the conference. This year will not be an exception.
I personally got started with blogging after repreatedly listening to Bill patiently explain the value of high-quality content blogging for enhancing findability on the Web and in Web search engines.
Bill is both an entertaining and insightful speaker. One of my favorites: "Never underestimate the bandwidth of a station wagon." He is also qlways quite patient with those of us who ask annoying questions because we just don't quite "get it." Ignore what Bill has to say at your own peril.
Listening to Bill speak is well worth the entire price of the conference, and then some. And, becuase of the open and interactive nature of the conference, you get plenty of time to interact with Bill as well as listen to him speak.
The conference runs from Thursday, March 27, 2008 through Sunday, March 30, 2008. Thursday and Friday are reserved for skiing and other group activities. Friday evening is the kick-off dinner. Saturday is the main body of the conference sessions. Additional sessions are held Sudnay morning. A group lunch for the lingering diehards is held early Sunday afternoon.
