Arab Net 2010, a success

Attending Arab Net 2010 (arabnet.me) was quite an experience, as over 600 delegates came to Beirut from 25 to 26 March to discuss Arab web business ventures and the opportunities in this emerging industry.

Apart from the conference sessions, the event aimed to identify and award start-ups that can gain support from investors. In fact, all the "Ideathon" 10 finalists were approached by investors and all start-up finalists were approached by investors.

The event also showcased the power of social media, with live-tweeting in the hall, making the hashtag #arabnetme trend globally on Twitter in 4th place. Overall, there were more than 10,000 tweets.

Arab Net was also streamed live, generating over 200 simultaneous UStream viewers, and getting over 2,500 virtual attendees at live.arabnet.me.

More details on the conference content, panels and activities coming up soon.

The display of (unmoderated) live tweets opened the door for an unprecedented participation from -and outside- the audience. Welcome to democracy 2.0

At the beginning I thought the post was not interesting, but I have to say I was intrigued with this theme. After read the information you posted, and the way you did it, I change my opinion and I started to feel curiosity for your other entries, so I decided to read them all one by one. Now, I have to say it became in one of the greatest blogs I have read in my entire life.
