Two exciting developments regarding the Enterprise 2.0 2010 Santa Clara Conference today. First, the agenda is now online and features brand new tracks including Business Tools and Technology Decisions, Community Development and Management as well as two tracks dedicated exclusively to Social CRM and HR technology strategies. This is a first for the conference so take a look at the lineup and start planning how you'll spend your time at E2 in November. We also have a few more conference sessions coming, and we'll continue to confirm additional panelists and speakers in the next few weeks. And the Call for Papers winners have been selected! As always, we were very impressed by the quality of submissions we received and the selection process was not an easy one.
