EmergentCon On for 2007

On the eve of the final Emergent/YS co-op conference in Nashville, plans for a 2007 Emergent Convention appear to already be in the works. Launched after the San Diego Emergent Convention in February, the 07Event planning blog explains the event will be tailored for 2,000-3,000 people, most likely in Portland or New York City (despite Dan Hughes' 12 Reasons EmergentCon should coincide with SXSW in Austin, TX).

In his initial 07Event post, Doug Pagitt explains, "I think we are at a crucial point with a brief window of being able to turn the public perception of Emergent from the Brand to a catalytic network of friendships and these events may help that" (emphasis added).
