Top 6 From Web 2.0 Summit [Video] – A Must Watch
There have been a couple of interesting conferences going in the past week. There was Web 2.0 Summit in San Francisco (by O’Reilly Media, Inc. and TechWeb) and there is StartUp school going on at UC, Berkley (by Y-Combinator). Web 2.0 Summit was loaded with a lot of great stuff. For all the guys who weren’t lucky enough to attend it go through these videos. I am not putting in all of them here, just the ones I found interesting. Some very very insightful stuff. Right from Google’s co-founder Sergey Brin to Twitter’s co-founder Evan Williams. One thing was common – almost everybody talks about Twitter. We have an interview with all em here. In a typical TechDusts style we have 20-30 words summary of the interview and the respective video follows. Don’t miss watching them. If you dont have time in hand right now you might like to bookmark it for future reference (Delicious). Do tell us which of these video you liked the most or which gives future insights of Web 2.0.

1). Google’s co-founder, Sergey talks about Twitter, Bing, Chrome for Mac, Google Books, Android, what keeps him awake at night and his shoes
2). Twitter’s co-founder and CEO Evan Williams touches topics ranging from Twitter’s growth( both US and International), revenue model, apps, threat from Facebook, why Twitter doesn’t want to get acquired, Google Wave, Search deal with MS and Google, why he want to kill SUL etc.
3). Facebook COO, Sherly Sandberg on search deal with Bing, IPO, Facebook Connect, monetization, Twitter, power of making people connect with each other etc.
4). Owen Van Natta, CEO of MySpace on socialization of content (^3), Twitter, Facebook, Myspace music and socialization of content!
5). AOL’s Chairman and CEO Tim Armstrong talks about why he quit Google, Twitter, Bing, search deal with Google. Tim also gives a glimpse of the future plans of AOL. One thing which clearly comes out is that now AOL sees itself as a content company, they have gone from some 500 journalists to 3000 in less than a year.
6). Sean Parker a serial entrepreneur talk has something really interesting “Why companies like Facebook, Twitter, Ebay and Apple but not Google with determine the future of internet.”

If you are planning a Tech Start-Up (especially in Silicon Valley) then you should also check out Being A Start-Up (one of my personal favorites), though it is no way related to Web 2.0 summit but never the less an awesome stuff.Web 2.0 Summit 2009
