Enterprise 2.0 Conference: It's a wrap.

A great big shout out and thank you to all who participated in this week's Enterprise 2.0 Conference - whether you were in Boston or following along virtually.It was another solid and successful industry-shifting event... a gathering of great business people - collaborating on ideas, technology and innovation.Here are some fantastic quotes we'd like to share with you:

"... the Enterprise 2.0 conference in Boston... is dedicated to a broad discussion of the issues surrounding collaborative systems and their impact especially on and within larger organizations... the organizers, led by my friend and colleague Steve Wylie ... did an amazing job of truly building a community around this event, which attracted practitioners from many firms and industries."

- Craig Matthias, Network World

"I'm encouraged that the dirty little secret of Web 2.0 and social media technologies is finally being openly addressed by early adopters and vendors alike. At the Enterprise 2.0 Conference in Boston, there's been frank discussion this week of the question average users have been whispering (so that their bosses don't hear them): Namely, what can this stuff do for me that's actually useful?"

- Alex Wolfe, InformationWeek

"... the Enterprise 2.0 conference is a reason to withstand the wrath of the gods. Before I get into some of the highlights and my take on at least the first day of the conference, I want to emphasize something that makes me sound like a fanboy. If there''s one conference you need to attend that ends with a 2.0 - this is the one, if you care about your business..."

- Paul Greenberg, ZDNet
