My University Track at fowa

Presentagious – Community tools that empower people to share, connect and interact.


My session is about business tools within the context of social media particularly web 2.0. I will be discussing the demands that web 2.0 has placed on traditional business tools – with the increased need for collaboration, remote working, co-working, and agile development.Canada Goose Expedition Parka

The discussion includes categories of business tools, from productivity, to community, to collaboration. Tools that once dominated these categories pre-web 2.0 as well as tools that are in play today? This workshop will also discuss some of the features that are critical in defining a USEFUL business tool. Features like cloud computing, micro blogging, conversations, content portability, and data portability.Canada Goose Trillium Parka

My goal is for the audience to walk away from this session with a greater idea of business tools for the web, and an idea of what it takes to be outstanding in business today.

Empressr crosses the pond

Wednesday, October 8th, 2008

We (myself and Mike Davis, @globalcitizen) started a European tour last week. We started out joining Werner Vogles (the awesome dude that runs tech at the very cool company Amazon), for lunch and then attended his birthday party that evening. It is amazing to spend time and interesting conversations about technology and life with the CTO of a major global company, what an experience. I posted some pictures on my flickr.

Next Stop was Ibiza Spain to meet with the guy that puts on one of the largest music conferences in Europe, more to come on this.

Mike had to go back to the states on Tuesday, Empressr is sponsoring SM4SC this Friday October 10, at the Harvard Club in Boston, he will be speaking there, it’s a great cause and I encourage you to attend. Me, I headed to London. Today October 8 I’m at fowa (future of web apps), Empressr will have a stand showing off our newest version of Empressr and I will be presenting at one of the university sessions on Thursday 15:45-16:50 Business and Tools track.
