SDForum Search SIG

Getting caught up on my SDForum email this morning, I caught notice of a new Search SIG whose first meeting will be right here on the Yahoo campus:

Join SDForum on Wed, 9/14 at Yahoo’s headquarters in Sunnyvale for the inaugural Silicon Valley Search SIG, where our first meeting will be an overview of the audio search market and an in-depth look at podcasting startups, directiories, and tools.

With the raging popularity of iTunes, the announcement of Yahoo Audio Search, and the sudden upsurge in podcasting — not to mention recent notable venture financings for startups like PodShow and Odeo — the audio search & podcasting market appears to be heating up fast.

Our program will feature an interview & perspective with larger players in the audio and podcast market, as well as a sneak peek at some of the up & coming audio startups who are making headlines. We will also feature product demos by our speakers as part of our meeting, and perhaps some new feature announcements as well.”

Looks like fun — I’ll be there.
