    So where are the women? In the audience and on screen, you are showing us that your future of the web is white male (and the quasi white Indian and Asian). Where are the latins and the africans and the middle easterners?

    And how did you pick the industry insiders? Your friends. It’s a misnomer to say these are industry insiders. These are people who have overestimated their status as have you.

    It’s an interesting idea, but until you actually include all kinds of people, you are limiting yourself to a single value set, excluding all the many valuesets that will actually act in the future of the web.

    1. What are they supposed to do? Import web engineers from overseas to make it appear more multicultural? This is a local San Francisco event, and the audience appears to be fairly typical for this kind of event. Even the statistics from Quantcast for GigaOm’s readers say the reader audience is 68% male and 77% Caucasian: http://www.quantcast.com/gigaom.com

      1. There is something to be said for the repetitive nature of the attendance lists for these events. It isn’t clear how new ideas are to emerge when the same people speak over and over again.

        It would be interesting to get some of the power users of the products and tools who *aren’t* industry insiders (they do exist!) to provide some firsthand knowledge for their uses and needs.

    2. It’s funny that both of the respondents that I am replying to for citing lack of multicultural attendance, are probably not going to go, and are oddly enough, female.
      Reminds me of arguments I have with females who say I was sexist for stating the fact that most of these technical jobs go to *gasp* males. If you two females want to pull the affirmative action to these events, I would love to see both of you go, rather than blaming the organizers for being predominantly male because females have “better” things to do and being on the sidelines.

      Why aren’t you two blaming the Board of Directors of the major companies such as Apple and Google who shared the same board members? Why aren’t you targeting that group of “same old people”?

      QED.

      1. Wait a minute, laura didn’t cite a problem of multicultural attendance, but rather the repetitive nature of the attendance lists, and I agree with her point.

    The dude in the beanie needs a five second delay.

  5. This is really a nice concept that I think melds with a lot of what was spoken of during this.

    I think it would make more web stuff more approachable.
