2009/11/03: Tweets from the Enterprise 2.0 2009 Conference (#E2Conf)

I was unable to attend the Enterprise 2.0 Conference in San Francisco.   The event took place at the Moscone North Convention Center from November 2-5, 2009.  Thankfully, most of the speeches were broadcast live via E2 TV.

Thanks to Twitter, I was able to follow the real time tweets coming from the conference using the #e2conf hashtag.  This was complimented by the over 900 Twitter users that I follow on a regular basis.

Only in the age of the Real Time Web, could I follow multiple conference sessions in real time, without attending the physical event.

The following is my compilation of the Tweets or ReTweets (RT) made from the comfort of my couch via my MacBook & iTouch on November 3, 2009.

  16. #E20 is not about Speed Dating as MSFT presented MOSS2010. It is about long term relationships. E1.0 is failing Customer-Driven Enterprises.

Alternative Thoughts from @slmader

  1. The terms “emergent” and “social” are equally risky in business. Case in point: bad PR that gets “emergently” worse. #e2conf (via @slmader)
  2. #e2conf “I can’t prevent you from being stupid, but I can show everyone how stupid you are.” Seems like a negative statement (via @slmader)

  4. #e2conf What sounds good to early adopters doesn’t necessarily sound good to the average user. too often it scares them away. (via @slmader)

  1. It is good to see that MS is moving from ActiveX to AJAX. IBM needs to do the same i.e. move from heavy Java Applets to pure AJAX

  2. Note to future users of cubetree/yammer:

    Yammer/Cubetree usage at an enterprise level is no different than e-mail or any other form of communication when it comes to e-discovery request for litigation purposes. When enterprises sign up for yammer/cubetree, they need to be mindful of this.

    cubetree/yammer carry a number of legal implications. Users cubetree(ing)/yammering from corporate networks could expose company secrets. These conversations, much like their electronic predecessors (e.g. email), are legally binding and subject to the legal rules of electronic discovery and can be subpoenaed in a lawsuit. Just like we need retention/destruction policies for email, we need the same for cubetree, yammer etc.
