Not to be Missed: Evening in the Cloud

It's great seeing the #e2conf stream come alive - folks are pouring into the Westin Boston Waterfront from all around the globe to gather at Enterprise 2.0 with one common objective:to listen, learn and share their stories about collaboration in business.Just as Enterprise 2.0 brings together like minded E2.0 adopters from all parts of the world, the World Cup 2010 in South Africa simultaneously has fans glued to their screens to support their talented countrymen play the beautiful game. Good news for all you soccer fans at Enterprise 2.0 - the Westin has set up a massive screen for the games in the Lobby, and you can grab a schedule from the Concierge (I've already snagged mine).Tomorrow the conference begins at 8:30 am with workshops running till 4:15 pm, and afterwards we have a special program taking place on Monday night starting at 4:30 pm called Evening in the Cloud.For all you #e2conf veterans, Evening in the Cloud will be a familiar program as this is our 3rd year doing it in Boston. Each year the format has changed slightly, and this year the topic is Which Collaboration Backbone is Right for You?David Berlind will open the program with a 30 minute overview of the cloud collaboration market, the major players in the market, and touch on why the market is changing so rapidly. After his overview,Sean Poulley from IBM will provide a 15 to 20 minute demo of LotusLive Online Collaboration Services, and then joinBill McNee,Founder and CEO of Saugatuck Technology andYuvi Kochar,Vice President of Technology / Chief Technology Officer of The Washington Post Companyfor an hour long discussion about choosing one's cloud collaboration partner.
