We've got a low barrier to entry, both financially and technologically
Brighton, UK (PRWEB) September 23, 2008
< head >, the eco-friendly virtual web conference, issued a reminder today that its $99 early-bird discount will be ending at the end of September. With financial markets in turmoil and fears of the economic downturn affecting the tech industry, < head > provides an affordable alternative to web conferences costing ten times as much.
"We're eco-friendly and affordable", said Aral Balkan, conference chair, "and it's, not just the low ticket price, you don't have hotel or flight costs either."
The < head > web conference is scheduled to take place October 24-26, 2008 and will be streamed live via an interactive Adobe Flash client. Attendees and speakers participate using a standard web browser with the Adobe Flash player.
"We've got a low barrier to entry, both financially and technologically", said Balkan, "as 99% of Internet users already have the required software to attend the conference."
The conference has drawn widespread support from the industry and boasts high-profile speakers including Tim O'Reilly, founder and CEO of O'Reilly Media, Inc., Jason Fried, director of 37signals, Lynda Weinman, president of Lynda.com, Richard Moross, CEO of MOO.com, and Molly Holzschlag, group lead at the Web Standards Project and an invited expert at the W3C.

A note on the name:
The < head > conference is written with angular brackets, like the HTML tag. In this press release you will see spaces within the angular brackets. This is due to a limitation of the PRWeb system as, without the spaces it recognizes the name as an HTML tag instead of automatically escaping them. When writing the name, please do so without spaces between the < and the "h" and the "d" and the ">". When writing the name for online display, you can escape it using HTML entities: < head > (again, without spaces).
