SES NY 2007
returns for another year to New York, with the usual four day jam packed agenda
of sessions that I’m in charge of programming. But hey, Danny — I thought you
weren’t doing SES any more? Or are you doing all of them. I know, I know,
there’s some confusion apparently given the email I’m getting. Short story: I’m
programming SES NY, co-programming SES San Jose with Chris Sherman and then
speaking and moderating at SES Chicago.
Where’s Danny Sullivan Speaking
At In 2007? and
Danny Sullivan Is Only Programming SES NY 2007 & SES San Jose 2007 explains

small group training classes that began last year at SES San Jose. In New York,
will happen on April 9.
I’ll leave it off there for now, then do a further update next month. Don’t
forget, Search Engine Land’s own
SMX Advanced show
is set for June 4 & 5 in Seattle, and we also
