Virtual Goods Summit 2008 + last week’s Twitter links

I’m speaking at the Virtual Good Summit (plus a discount code)

I’ll be speaking at this year’s Virtual Goods Summit on October 10th, 2008 and I just wanted to share some details about the event. The Virtual Goods Summit 2008 is a one day conference focused on the emerging market opportunity for virtual goods and economies. This year’s conference will build on the success of last year’s event and dive even deeper into some of the key themes facing this emerging industry. The conference will feature a blend of panel discussions and expert-led breakout sessions covering everything from getting started with virtual goods to maximizing the revenue opportunity around virtual goods and virtual economies.

I’ll be giving a talk during one of the breakout sessions – Daniel James and I will be talking about how to apply a metrics-driven approach to analyzing and understanding a virtual goods business, using some of Daniel’s experiences at Whirled as an example. There will be a ton of great speakers and presenters at the conference – I’ll be joined by Amy Jo Kim (Shufflebrain), David King (Lil Green Patch), David Perry (Acclaim), Brian Balfour (Viximo), Sean Ryan (Meez), Nabeel Hyatt (Conduit Labs), and many other leading thinkers in this space.
