Last year in a very funny column Steve Gillmor tongue squarely placed in his cheek predicted that in 2006 Technorati will buy Google. You can check out why and whether there is a grain of truth in this prediction at the Future Salon this Friday, when the man who is the Tech in Technorati David Sifry himself will show how the future in the RSS aggregation world will shape up. It's the Future Salon, so we expect some future predictions, don't we?
At this year's Etech his Technorati Hacks presentation was one of the most interesting sessions. He introduced a new hack, a listing of the most talked about products in the blogsphere. The audience blogged about it right away and we could follow development of the link network on the screen.
SAP in Palo Alto has open Wifi and is therefore ideally suited for this session:

See you all there, Mark.
P.S. Dave changed his plan regarding SXSW sue to family emergency. I offered him to postpone the Future Salon session if need be. Actually I hope everything is good again with his family independent of the Future Salon. I'll keep you posted.
