WebVisions 2009 gets BoingBoinged! Oh wait, that’s “Boing Boing Ed.” Mark Frauenfelder


WebVisions, the premiere Web design and development gathering that calls Portland, Oregon, home, has continued to draw a number of influential Web types to the Rose City, year after year.

This year promises to be no different.

So who did the WebVisions team convince to come speak here this May? None other than Mark Frauenfelder, the founder of Boing Boing, which—in addition to being a constant source of strange and wonderful things—remains one of the most popular sites on the Web.

Boing Boing

How popular? The substantial and dedicated reader base of Boing Boing always carries with it the potential of being “BoingBoinged“—akin to being “slashdotted” or hitting the Digg front page—where a simple link from the popular blog can send a server-crushing load of traffic to even the most prepared site.

This is a big win for WebVisions—and for Portland in general. Aside from thousands of local fans, Mark’s keynote is sure to draw attendees—and attention—from across the US.

And Mark’s not the only noteworthy speaker. WebVisions always manages to gather an impressive roster of interesting people.

So what are you waiting for? May 20 is only four months away. Get moving. To RSVP and see who else is attending, head on over to WebVisions on Upcoming. To register for the event, visit WebVisions.
