The Conservative Conference Fringe List

For the last three weeks MessageSpace have been using a site called to advertise fringe meetings at each of the party conferences around the blogosphere. It's a free service, although you can pay for an enhanced listing. Guido explains it like this...
Guido is using to organise his schedule online. Register for the service and it will send you free text reminders for events you add to your schedule. The service integrates with Blackberry, iPhone and desktop calendars. Or you can just print out the schedule on paper.

It integrates with social media networks Facebook and Twitter, tells you what the most popular event is, letting you search the Fringe to find out who is speaking where and when. If you want to know where Hannan is, just search for his name. You will get a free text reminder telling where you are supposed to be before the event starts. It is hangover proof.

It is very social, you can see where your mates are going : For example you can see where Guido is going

It costs several hundred pounds just to get a listing in the official conference guide. I suspect in future people will think it's more cost effective to publicise it through sites like FringeList.

UPDATE: You can access all my fringe events on FringeList HERE.

Pretty scandalous to charge so much for a mention.

I recall an earlier generation of conservatives listening to the Green party's plaint for lower Deposits for Parliamentary Elections with sympathy.

Your billionaires have set your agenda and access to it for you.
