Defrag is Around the Corner

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.
