The details are:
UP New Years Event - Bloggers predictions for 2007
When: 25 January 2006, at 5:30 for a 6:00 start
Where: Creative HQ, at 25 Marion Street, Wellington
And here is the pitch:
We've asked Wellington's best bloggers to gaze into the future and tell us what the big news will be in the next twelve months. The wisdom of their prognostications will astound you—or make you laugh, at the very least.
The blogger who makes the best predictions — as voted by the audience — will be crowned UP Visionary of the Year for 2007, and receive an official certificate, a beautiful tiara [crown?], and full bragging rights… at least until 2008, when we will vote again on whether to revoke their title.
David Farrar, of Kiwiblog fame,
Tom Beard, Wellingtonista's "Blogger of the Year" for 2006,
Mauricio Freitas, the Geekzone Guy,
Philip Fierlinger, self-confessed Blog Junkie
Mike, carrying the hopes and dreams of the UP Exec
Each blogger will make 3 to 5 predictions.
Preditions will be in the following categories: Gadgets & Games,
The Internet, Business & Telecom[munications], Technology, Wellington & NZ.
Predictions made by blog readers in comments are allowed, but must be credited.
Cheating—by using insider knowldge, in-depth simulations, latent psychic powers, reasoned analysis, alcohol, ouija boards, etc— is strictly encouraged.
The last bit is important... So if you think you have a vision of the future of blogging, and it happens in 2007, then drop a comment here or contact me.
PS. If your name is not linked, I sincerely apologise - I simply can't find your blog right now, so please drop me a note and I will update the links.
