ConvergeSouth 2007 Keynote Speaker: Jason Calacanis

ConvergeSouth planning is ramping up again, and it looks like we landed a great speaker. Jason Calacanis is going to keynote this year. He’s the muscle behind Weblogs, Inc. and the new Netscape at AOL before going off to Sequoia and doing whatever they pay him to do.
Amusingly enough, I remember mentioning Jason’s name last year as someone to tap since from an entrepeneur standpoint, he’s a great guy to imitate and he blogs like the dickens and podcasts too. And not to mention, one of our own is part of the Weblogs, Inc family and broke the keynote news.
Did I know about it beforehand? Sure. Wasn’t expecting to talk about it this early in the game, but the cat’s out of the bag, you know? So welcome, Jason to Greensboro in October! And more session leaders to talk about in the months to come.
While I’m at it, I don’t suppose anyone would know if My Chemical Romance is willing to make a side-trip? Sure it’s a long shot for my own music planning, but I personally can’t help but love their music. Ha. Well, one can dream.
