For influencers and inspiration, Gnomedex 9.0Ning Network Spotlight
The 9th annual Gnomedex conference is being held August 20 in Seattle. Spearheaded by Chris Pirillo (who also runs the Geeks! Ning Network), the Gnomedex social network gives members the ability to scope out sessions, connect with other attendees and register for the conference.
Besides Chris, Gnomedex promises the opportunity to interact with some of the brightest minds in new and social media (people like Chris Brogan and Drew Olanoff). A full list of the conferences speakers are found on a Page on Gnomedex. Using the Tab Manager, Gnomedex has added a link to their registration page to make it easy to sign up to attend the conference.
