While all eyes seem to be on Las Vegas where CTIA Wireless 2009 will be held this Wednesday through Friday, in San Francisco, the Web 2.0 Expo that is co-produced by O’Reilly Media and TechWeb, started today and runs through Friday. 

Tomorrow, Mike Abbott, SVP of Application Software and Services for Palm is scheduled to do a keynote presentation at 5:10pm where he will address “how webOS will change the way users and developers think about mobile web experiences.”

Palm is sponsoring an Opening Reception starting at 5:30pm, which probably means Abbot’s talk will last 20 minutes or so.

The Web 2.0 Expo is described as being “a place for creativity, engineering, and innovation.” The conference program will be focusing on five main conference tracks: Strategy & Business Models, Marketing & Community, Design & User Experience, Fundamentals, and Development.  There will also be five mini focus tracks: Focus on Web Operations, Focus on Mobile, Focus on Security, Focus on Web 2.0 at Work, and Focus on Government 2.0.

Chances are, there won’t be much new to report.  One of the things we will be watching for is the reaction of the attendees to what Abbott has to say.
