It's easy to see why Google IO 2010 sold out so far in advance! Honestly, I'm having a hard time trying to figure out which sessions I can miss to attend other sessions. For example PubSubHubbub or Matt at Ignite? #io2010
Google is slated to publicly recognize a small cadre of VIP, "Google I/ON" developers next week in San Francisco, CA at Google IO. These developers will be recognized by for supporting Google's developer initiatives. According to Google, "We wanted a name that reflected something small in size, yet significant. We thought it'd be fun to do a play on "I/O." And thus the name, "Google Ions," was born." Even though they'll only represent about 5% of all attendees at Google IO 2010, I/ONs should be pretty obvious thanks to uniquely colored t-shirts, special I/ON pins, preferred Keynote seating and other limited edition schwag all courtesy of Google.
