Big Local Online Event… any Locals onhand?

Posted on Thursday, March 15, 2007 by No comments yet

Looks like a great event shaping up next week… all about local online: DRILLING DOWN ON LOCAL ’07 – The Annual Silicon Valley Summit. Organizer Peter Krasilovsky blogs about it here. Most of the mainstream heavy hitters appear to be on the agenda. I wonder how many locally based entities will attend and/or speak vs. national and global efforts that deliver “local” from afar?

Put another way, how much “local online” is delivered by local business (and other entities)? Might be an interesting question for the good folks at the Business Alliance for Local Living Economies, the Institute for Local Self-Reliance, and my friend and author Michael Shuman (Going Local, The Small-Mart Revolution).

Regardless, I wish I could be there next week… sounds like a powerful conference.
