What does Derek Featherstone, Chris Messina, Ben Buchanan, Cameron Adams, Kai Koenig, Nick Hodge, Tim Lucas, Lisa Herrod, Laurel Papworth, Stephen Collins, Donna Spencer, Russ Weakley, Marc Lehmann and Sonja Bernhardt all have in common, besides all being great people?

They’re all coming to Perth to present, at Edge of the Web 2008, Perth’s own web conference, brought to you by the Australian Web Industry Association.

We’ve just announced the subjects that this great line-up will present, as well as four half-day workshops. That’s two days, jam-packed ful of quality web learning and discussion, and we’ve also got the WA Web Awards that Friday night – what a week!

So, how does a not for profit association run entirely by volunteers get the word out about this huge leap for WA’s web industry? Well, we flog it on our own blogs and networks (you could call this an example :)) and we beg for your help!

If you’ve got a blog, a website, a social network or micro-blogging account, use email, use IM, own a spray can or know real, live people, we’d be extremely happy if you’d do your best to spread the word about our humble conference. If you’re on Facebook, join the Edge of the Web group, or RSVP to the event page.

We’d be even more grateful if you’d consider coming along yourself. You see, it’s relatively easy to put on an event, but not so easy to make sure you promote it well, and get those bums on seats. Without the aforementioned behinds, we’d not break even or make some money – and if that happens, you know what wouldn’t happen next year, don’t you?

So, please, jump in and tell others – we’ve got three months before the event, we’ve got great speakers and great people organising it, so now it’s up to you to do your part.
