You mean other people attend web 2.0 conferences?
The frantic bloggers have a point that they aren't making -- that a service
mark on "Web 2.0", even ostensibly within the field of conferences, is
overbroad. "Web 2.0" is a generic term, and "Web 2.0 Conference" is a
descriptive term, and should thus not be elegible for a service mark.
