There have been a lot of good wrap up posts of the Web 2.0 Summit. Particularly check out Read/Write Web’s wrap up, Fast Companies posts and of course Michael Arrington’s wrap up of the launchpad companies at TechCrunch.
I was interested in just how global the crowd was at Web 2.0. A quick calculation from the attendee list gives the following breakdown.
This was only for people who had a country listed. (Approx. 15% of attendees didn’t list a country). I also added a few Canadians who’s country wasn’t listed. These include speakers Stewart Butterfield, Paul Kedrosky and Don Tapscott.
I’d love to see Tim O’Reilly and John Batelle (who organized and hosted a great event) post the full demographics including the breakdown of female vs. male attendees. There was a great line up of female speakers, but I felt the percentage of women in attendance was quite low. I wonder how the attendee breakdown and diversity numbers compare to last year. It would be a interesting for conferences to start to publish their audience breakdown.
