DramaFest 2007 Amsterdam is pleased to announce that the following speakers have been added to the lineup.
Michael Arrington (Blogger)
Terry Semel (Former CEO of Yahoo, Rich Guy)
Topic: Why Silicon Valley Needs Executive Compensation Reform
Ron Jeremy (Pornstar) and Kevin Rose (Cereal Entrepreneur, $60 Million Man)
Topic: Branding with Breasts
Sean “Diddy” Combs and Chad Hurley/Steven Chen
Topic: Mo’ Money, Mo’ Problems
Frank Quattrone (Investment Banker)
You I Can Profit from the Inevitable Facebook IPO
Nicole Ritchie (?)
Ms. Ritchie demanded to be included because “If Paris is going, I should be there too.” Despite the fact that we did not believe that a discussion of dieting websites was relevant to DramaFest, we have decided to let Ms. Ritchie attend in exchange for Drama 2.0 having the ability to appear on a future episode of the Simple Life.
Jeremy Stoppelman (Co-Founder of Yelp, WAIT Training Abstinence Educator)
Topic: Where VC Money Really Goes
Please note that due to the sensitive nature of Mr. Stoppelman’s presentation, venture capitalists will not be permitted to attend. Instead, they are invited to view a one hour exotic dancing show sponsored by Yelp.
Patricia Handschiegel (Founder of StyleDiary.net, Member of the Fashion Police)
Topic: So Last Year: Why Silicon Valley’s Elite Need Drastic Makeovers
As part of her presentation, Ms. Handschiegel will perform a live makeover of Michael Arrington. Makeover sponsored by Sean Combs and his Sean John clothing line.
Catherine Cook (Designated Co-Founder of MyYearbook.com)
Topic: How Teens Can Like Cash In by Letting Older Siblings Use Them as Marketing Tools and Stuff
Tommy Chong (Actor, Chemist)
Topic: Up in Smoke: How Psychedelic Drugs Influenced Some of Silicon Valley’s Greatest Innovators
Mr. Chong’s presentation will be followed by a “vision quest” session designed to enable participants to tap into alternative realms. It is the hope of the DramaFest organizers that this can spark some real creativity and innovation in Web 2.0. All necessary substances are provided by an anonymous donor.
My attorneys at the law firm of Dewey, Cheatem & Howe have advised me to make it clear that DramaFest 2007 is a parody intended solely to serve as a social commentary about the state of technology conferences. The individuals and entities referenced in this post are not really participating in a DramaFest conference and they’re all probably really nice in real life. Hopefully you were able to figure this out on your own.Print This Post
