We’re drawing ever-closer to GLUE Conference 2012, May 23rd and 24th in Colorado. The conference, which focuses on the technology that binds the different parts of the Internet together, has quickly earned a reputation for being a must-attend by those who make the Web work. That’s exactly why TNW will be there as well.

I can tell you first-hand that the 12 companies that will be showcased in the Alcatel-Lucent Demo Pods are some of the best in the world. How do I know? Because I personally helped to choose them. But even if you have absolutely no interest in the startups that will be participating, it’s almost impossible to ignore the massive agenda of keynote speakers and breakout sessions that GLUE will provide.

Unfortunately, early-bird ticket pricing has now ended. But we’re not ones to leave you hanging here at TNW. We’ve teamed up as the official media sponsors of GLUE, so the code “TNW12″ will get you 10% off your ticket price. However, you’d best get moving because the conference is set to sell out quickly when people realize that time is drawing to a close.

Still need a bit of convincing? Here are 10 reasons that you absolutely need to be at GLUE this year. I can tell you that there’s not a US  technology conference on my radar about which I’m more excited, so come join me and let’s make the Internet a better place.
