Rocky Mountain, Hi

Tomorrow, I’m headed to Denver for Collaborate 08. My schedule is pretty sparse, so if you want to hang out, tweet at me during the conference. Or if you prefer email, that works too. I started to collect all the blogs about all the sessions people are holding, attending, recommending at Collaborate, but I soon… Read More

Spring Conferences

We’ve been pretty busy with conferences lately, and that looks to continue into the Summer. Paul attended Under the Radar The Business of Web Apps: Where the Web Goes to Work last week, and I think he’s working on a post summarizing his thoughts. Rich spoke at the JRuby Meetup a few weeks ago, and… Read More

Back from OpenWorld

Sure, I got back from OpenWorld last Thursday, but I’m only now willing to get back in the saddle and blog about it. As I mentioned to a few of the Enterprise Irregulars who attended, OpenWorld is a marathon. Imagine a full day sessions, quietly sitting and listening, tons of walking around San Francisco, meeting… Read More

Off to OpenWorld

I’m headed out to San Francisco early tomorrow morning and will be around the event all day, probably on Twitter. I’m debating whether to take both the Macbook and PC. The Macbook’s battery life is a huge plus, whereas the PC can barely get booted on a full charge, which is annoying at best.  The… Read More

Cool Stuff is Happening

If you read this blog, you’ll know I use Twitter, as do many of the people I interact with virtually. Recently, Twitter and its use created a strange alliance that is a powerful case study for new web collaboration. This alliance made up of a person from SAP, a person from Oracle, an Oracle customer,… Read More

AppsLab Meetup

As we roll towards OpenWorld next week, it’s key to have each evening planned as well as the days. After all, conferences are a great chance to catch up with old friends, make new ones and put a real world face to a digital voice. In that spirit, join us at the AppsLab meetup, which… Read More

Sharing OpenWorld

Heading into OpenWorld next week, there are a few tools that you can use to broadcast your experiences and consume updates from the conference. Eddie has a great post today, detailing how to send pictures to the Oracle OpenWorld 2007 Flickr group. Just send an email to future09ideas at photos dot flickr dot com. You… Read More

More OpenWorld Blogger Updates

Dennis pinged me over Twitter asking for keynote details for OpenWorld. So, I figured rather than talk about the elephant in the room, i.e. OpenSocial about which I know nothing, honestly, I would avoid the subject. First, the official OpenWorld Agenda and Show Guide is available here. This is exactly the same one you’ll get… Read More

OpenWorld Blogger Update

So, a few updates for those interested in attending OpenWorld as a blogger. The registration process is now working, and we have a few confirmed attendees, including Vinnie and Jeff, who have also graciously offered to help plan the agenda for bloggers, which I think is still in the works. Because of the sheer number… Read More

McAfee’s Own 9x Problem

As I sat this week at the Gartner conference, I had the opportunity to hear Andrew McAfee speak about Enterprise 2.0. One of the things I enjoyed hearing live was the 9x problem. He has written about it before, but the phenomenon is that we tend to overestimate the value of current solutions by 3x… Read More

This widget shows events that have been posted to our upcoming group, aptly called appslab. Anyone can join and use upcoming, and anyone can join and post events to… Read More

Video of Paul at Office 2.0

ZDNet has posted a short snippet of Paul’s commentary about Connect, after Dan Farber quizzed (and needled) him. I lol’d when Paul said he had a team of developers who are web savvy. Rich apparently has cloned himself. Woo-hoo! Either that or I am now a web developer . . . bah?

Find Me at the Office 2.0 Conference

Next week is the Office 2.0 Conference made immortal by their offer of free iphones to all participants. The conference looks to have a good mix of participation and as luck would have it, I’ll be speaking on a panel covering Enterprise 2.0 Collaboration. That session is Friday afternoon, but you can see the entire… Read More
