It’s less than a week untill the Web Fest .Me conference in Budva, Montenegro. As one of the biggest regional web conference, it should be a great show. A place to meet your fellow web professionals, entrepreneurs as well as the .Me content team. Yep, we’ll be there blogging away. We start on September 22nd with an official opening and a number of awesome startup presentations. Lets see who we can expect:
Matt Mullenweg is the founder of WordPress as well as Automattic, the company that drives WordPress forward. WordPress is one of the leading open source content management systems on the market, especially for blogs. Recent data show that’s its used by 15 percent of the top 100 websites in the world. Matt has been named one of the Top 30 Entrepreneurs Under 30 by Inc. Magazine in 2008.
If you’ve ever tweeted at an event, like you will at Webfest, you’ve probably inadvertently used Wall of Tweets. Vibor Cipan is the CEO and partner at UX Passion, a full service user experience agency that created the best Twitter wall solution out there: Wall of Tweets. It has been used at numerous TEDx conferences, Ignite events as well as at the World Economic Forum.
Andraž Tori is the co-founder and CTO of Zemanta, the semantic-based engine that helps bloggers and web writers create their content easily. Andraz is a programmer at heart with a lot of business and media experience, which is the reason why Zemanta has been so well received by bloggers from around the world.
