AWIA/Port80/WA Web Awards news for this month

Thankfully the goings on of the WA Web Industry Association and the WA Web Awards is a little more exciting than this blog post title.

The April mini-talk podcasts and slides are up – unfortunately, the podcast gods decided to send Nick’s recording to the Bahamas on a junket, leaving Bronwen’s talk to fend for it’s self. Thankfully, he supplied his talk notes, which should give you a fair idea of what is going on.

This month’s talks will be Richard Giles from Scouta with his talk “Digital Social Networking, For Fun and Profit” and Stephen Carrol on “Government grants and assistance”. For those of you who want get in to the wonderful world of Web 2.0 social startups, and want some advice the talks are on Wednesday 2 May 2007 at the Velvet Lounge behind the Flying Scotsman in Mt Lawley from about 6 o’clock. Talks will start at 6:30.

We (we being the WA Web Awards sub-committee) have quietly launched the new WA Web Awards website for 2007. We will loudly announce it in a couple of weeks once tickets and entries are open to the public. I would suggest heading over and subscribing to the RSS feed and newsletter, so you can receive the loud announcement.

We are looking for sponsors for said awards at the moment, so if you think your company would benefit exposure to a couple of hundred web developers and designers, drop me a line and I can hook you up with a proposal.
