Microsoft Pri0

Welcome to Microsoft Pri0: That's Microspeak for top priority, and that's the news and observations you'll find here from Seattle Times technology reporter Matt Day.

So you want to make this blog, huh?

A panel discussion coming up in two weeks will provide entrepreneurs and VCs a chance to grill the media on how to get noticed.

Well, here’s an early hint — if you are looking for publicity for your panel, invite the media.

Five reporters, including myself, will make themselves available for a panel discussion starting at 5:30 p.m. July 24 at The Havana Social Club on Capitol Hill.

At 6:30 p.m., the organizer Glenn Kelman, CEO of Redfin, has planned quite the after-party. The sponsors are Redfin and Madrona Venture Group, but it looks like other startups, including iLike, WetPaint, Farecast, Jobster and WildTangent, are also really pitching in.

With this list of reporters, the discussion will likely be lively:

Tricia Duryee, The Seattle Times

John Cook, The Seattle Post-Intelligencer

Rebecca Buckman, The Wall Street Journal

Fred Vogelstein, Wired magazine

Michael Arrington, TechCrunch

Kelman announced the event — being called “The Naked Truth” — on his blog and he’s asking people to RSVP to both the panel and the party at this wiki.
