Social Scene Recap – SES San Jose 2007

As my current clients can probably vouch for, I’ve been scarce for the past ten days or so–last week was a whirlwind tour of pubs, pizzerias, and parties. Oh, and a few very entertaining sessions at SES San Jose :).

With all of the truly amazing people in the SEO community, it’s shocking to me that the profession has gotten such a bad rap among traditional advertisers and traditional media. Even the experts in the field are down-to-earth, straight-shooting folks who know how to have a good time! A few bad apples on the fringe of the industry seem to be spoiling the entire bushel…

So, for those who are interested, here’s quick list & a few links to the terrific people I’ve met and/or enjoyed hanging out with again for the past three weeks (in order of appearance):

  3. Hi David,

    It was great to meet you at SES. I’m humbled to be on your list!

    Your work, and our conversation warrant a strong recommendation. Send any skeptics my way and I’ll tell ’em you’re well worth the time and cost :)

    All the best,

  4. Did I give the impression that I was a fan of Matt? I need to correct that. I’m terrible with names and wasn’t a big SEOmoz reader until recently, so I didn’t recognize him, all I knew was he had on a He-Man shirt and that rocked beyond belief. :)

    Regardless, it was great meeting you and I’m enjoying all of the recaps. Btw, your blog is pretty.

  5. Hey David, thanks for the mention, it was great to see you again, too. See you at the next one (pubcon?)
