Defrag is Around the Corner

Comments (7)

The Defrag Conference is happening on Monday 11/3 and Tuesday 11/4.  I’m totally psyched – Eric Norlin has put together a killer agenda.  The list of people coming that I can’t wait to see and spend time with is dynamite.

When Eric and I cooked up the idea for Defrag, our goal was to create a "thinking person’s" conference for exploring ideas around the Implicit / Semantic Web.  It’s evolved and – in its second year – we are planning on talking about the intersection of the following topics:

  • Enterprise 2.0
  • Online Collaboration
  • The Implicit Web
  • Collective Intelligence
  • The Semantic Web
  • Mash-ups
  • Social Networking in the Enterprise
  • Next-level Discovery

In addition, on Sunday 11/2 my partner Chris Wand is hosting a dinner for anyone interested in exploring the next generation of messaging.

There’s still time to register – use Foundry1 to get $300 off the registration.  It looks like we will have well over 300 people in attendance this year so it’s big enough to have critical mass yet intimate enough to generate a lot of deep conversations.

    Paul- that would be me (my fault). ;-) I was (at one point) very concerned about it, but nearly everyone i've spoken with is all about early/absentee voting these days anyway….and a bunch of defrag attendees are planning to hang out through tuesday evening (and have a bit of a party).

    We moved the Boulder Denver Meetup to the same hotel as Defrag and we have a great group of presenters lined up. As Erik says vote early. Thanks for hosting this event in Denver.
