Day Two SES NY 2008 Summary and Party Photos

Jason Calcanis Danny Sullivan watch SEO Rap Battle

Day two rolled right along here at SES New York with great sessions well documented by an array of blog coverage. This includes our own Jolina Pettice who filed an SES inspired post on “Tips for Overcoming Client-Created Roadblocks” as well as session coverage of “Converting Visitors into Buyers” and the Orion panel on Universal Search. We also posted a video interview with Sara Holoubeck on current SEMPO news.

After the conference SES attendees dispersed and two events Jolina and I were able to attend included Alan Dick’s Vintage Tub and Bath Dinner at the Manahattan Penthouse and the (IMNY) charity party at the Black Finn bar. A highlight of the evening was the SEO Rap battle between Marcus Tandler and m0serious from PopLabs at the table Jason Calcanis and Danny Sullivan were sitting at (photo above).
