The Working Group January Call

Tomorrow, January 23 is the monthly call of the Working Group, the Enterprise 2.0 support group Paul formed back in December.

This month’s guest speaker, Mark Mader, CEO of Smartsheet, comes to us via one of our friends at Hyperion. He’ll be discussing his unique perspective on how companies are using collaborative software, challenges inside organizations and some thoughts on the future of this space. Incidentally, Smartsheet uses Amazon S3, like many other startups, and yet another example of Amazon Web Services at work.

The call details are:

Time: 0900 Pacific
Duration: Roughly 1 hour
Dial In Number: 1 877 664 4417
Conference ID: 31691029

As with last month’s call, apologies to those in time zones where the call is either too late or too early. It will be recorded and posted for your review. If you have questions you’d like to ask Matt or questions you want the group’s feedback on, feel free to add them in comments here, post them to the Ning forum or mail them to Paul or me.

We’ve not had much chance to address open items like compiling collateral and FAQs or how to engage people more, but don’t hesitate to use the same methods listed above to let us know your thoughts and suggestions.

Also, let us know if you have ideas for future speakers and topics. Ideally, you’ll have some connection with the suggested speaker. In other words, if you want Tim O’Reilly to speak, it would really help to have an in with him that you can use to get it done.

    Hi Guys,

    This sounds interesting, what puts me off is the need to register and sign in to ning to follow some of the links. IS this something you are going to promote generally or do you need to join to see / hear (in the case of the recorded call), or is this a good oppertunity to post a podcast or even transcribed text?

    cheers

    Pete

    @Pete: Yeah, Ning requires that. I think it’s good for this group because we want to promote an active community too, as well as a transparent one, since it’s part support group.

    I’ll leave it to Paul to decide if he wants to provide the recordings to anyone. Thanks.

    Pete/Jake – Yes we require people login to Ning to get the recording. Ning is very lightweight and super easy, so it’s not a barrier in my opinion.

    Hopefully you’ll give it a try and join some of the discussions going on there…
