SES New York: a late personal recap
Although it’s a little late, Bas asked me if I can still put a short personal recap of the SES New York. I will not dig into every single session I visited. If you want to have an overview of the sessions, just look at our twitterstream of the event and our previous posts. Other great resources are the liveblogging posts of Lisa Barone at Outspokenmedia and the Bruce Clay blog.

Twitter was certainly one of the most used words of this year’s SES. Not in the last place, because of the pretty controversial keynote of Guy Kawasaki at the start of the conference. For those who don’t know the subject of his keynote: Guy talked about how to get a lot of followers and especially what kind of methods and tools he uses. Guy Kawasaki is an outstanding presenter and his speech caused a lot of discussions. Is Guy just a spammer or a great marketer?
But… there’s one exception: I cannot send a direct message to people that are not following me, but I can still send them a message that appears as a reply. Unfortunately this function can be abused to send unsolicited messages. Guy called the tool he uses for these purposes , Twitterhawk, “the ultimate spam tool”. And I have to admit…. it is.
Like I said, I don’t want to cover all sessions. Instead I will give you an overview on out Top 10 live tweets from #sesny:
