Wanted to let you know about a unique conference on collaboration systems happening this Wednesday, March 3 at The Tech Museum in San Jose. Organized by a batch of collaboration specialists calling themselves Program for the Future, and basing their ideals on Doug Engelbart’s vision of developing tool systems that can deal with the world’s complex and “wicked” and problems – this conference will be an experiential dive into the real-time use of multiple collaobration systems.
Finalists of the Program for the Future Challenge will be announced during the day – along with the announcement of one winner of the Engelbart Prize in the evening program (brief agenda)(full agenda).
Meshing virtual worlds, Google Wave, real time reporting from tables, video and more, this is one not to be missed. Less than 8 “real world” attendee spots remain open for the venue in San Jose, and if you can’t make it in person, register as a virtual participant. Join in with all the collaborative tools you can bring to this unique experiment.
Real and virtual registration at: http://colaboration2010.eventbrite.com
There will be multiple opportunities to link up with some of the most talented tool makers and users there, so here’s your invitation to get involved on all these levels. See you there, – Bob Ketner
