Two exciting developments regarding the Enterprise 2.0 2010 Santa Clara Conference today.

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!
