Photos from National Go-Topless Day, Venice 2011

Sunday, August 21st, 2011

Today is the fourth annual National Go-Topless Day. In cities across the United States, from Honolulu to Washington, DC marches were held and breasts were freed for a few hours. The protest is held to bring attention to what is described as “unconstitutional topless gender discrimination.” These photos are from the event held at Venice Beach, CA. There were a few hundred participants. Granted a majority of them appeared to be men that probably should be forced to wear shirts in public, it served to show the inequality. Women must cover their breasts, but guys with larger breasts are free to swing. Luckily, we had the religious zealots out there to remind us how terrible the human body is.

PimpsPromo is headed back to Europe

Thursday, August 11th, 2011

PimpsPromo is coming back to the EU. I will be covering Webmaster Access in Amsterdam, NL; The European Summit in Prague, CZ and XBIZ EU in London, UK. While this will be my 5th visit to Amsterdam, this will be my first visit to Prague or London so I am looking forward to seeing these two venues.

Webmaster Access, Amsterdam will be held from September 16 through September 19. For the second straight year the show will be held at the Park Hotel. The adult webmaster B2B event will begin with the Dutch Webmaster Meeting, which starts at noon with a Meet Market and Speed Networking. You can visit their site to register and get more information. Highlights of the Webmaster Access show would include two speed networking sessions, a meet market and the XXX Smackdown: Stuart Lawley vs Tom Hymes panel. That should make for an interesting conversation. There will also be the 1st Annual GFY People’s Choice Awards, so that should be fun. Registration for Webmaster Access is currently €149.00, so order today.

Next up will be The European Summit which runs from September 20-23 at Hotel Praha in Prague, CZ. The European Summit was previously known as The Barcelona Summit, which I have attended on three occasions. If history has taught me anything, that is that Andreas and Walter put on a great show and do their best to ensure everyone’s needs are met. A quick look at their schedule shows that there is non-stop activity all day long without starting too early in the morning. YNOT will be continuing their Grand Prix Kart series and will have their first ever awards show. Seems like awards shows are getting popular. Registration for The European Summit is free for affiliates and €269 for company reps.

I will end my European tour with a new show put on XBIZ, XBIZ EU. XBIZ EU will be a three day event held at the Radisson Edwardian Bloomsbury in London, UK from September 23-25. XBIZ has a lot of experience putting on these shows, and they never fail to provide lots of business and educational opportunities. There will be speed networking and meet markets as well as the usual seminars and keynote speakers. In addition, there will be a debate between Diane Duke of the Free Speech Coalition and Stuart Lawley of ICM Registry about .XXX. You know this will be worth attending. Registration for XBIZ EU if free for affiliates and adult website owners that stay at the show hotel. All others it is €100 online or €200 at the door. (more…)
