Office2.0 version 1.5, Additional Insight from Day One

The other day, I was reading Read/Write Web before heading up to Office 2.0 and Richard McManus posted some great questions to stimulate dialogue and create a forum for truly interesting market and technology analysis. Does Office 2.0 represent a revolution, a paradigm shift? Or just incremental improvement on Microsoft Office? What Office 2.0 apps and services best represent the paradigm shift of Office 2.0 to you? Do you agree that Google’s web-based office apps are more evolutionary than revolutionary?…

October 2006 STIRR 1.7 Founder’s Mixer

I recently had the opportunity to sit down for lunch with Sanford Barr and Dan Arkind. I’ve also held a few conversations with Joanne Wan and Sean Ness to discuss STIRR. Their vision for STIRR is united as they bring together the people driving the new tech economy forward. STIRR is by far the industry’s biggest, concentrated, most powerful, must-attend tech mixer out there, and it is only continuing to grow. Why? Because they control the attendee registration – invitees,…

Office2.0 version 1.0

Aside from Google stealing thunder with its announcement of Google docs and spreadsheets, sessions starting at 8 a.m., and the wireless bandwidth, or lack thereof, at the Office 2.0 conference, there were some pretty exciting demonstrations and discussions. Plus, I got to sit next to Steve Gilmor and Vic Podaster for most of the show, and it was pretty cool to have them ask me which companies I preferred. Demonstration pods adorned the hallways outside of the ballroom. For a…

Office 2.0 Kicks off in San Francisco

The Office 2.0 reception kicked off last night at SF MOMA. It was actually a grand affair, at least by Web 2.0’s more humbled event precedents. It truly drew an all-star crowd and the dialogue in there was pretty enlightening.

Office 2.0 Conference Showcases the Future of Office Productivity

Office 2.0 is much more than a new way of enhancing in-office productivity and it’s definitely much more than highlighting current state of “everything 2.0” out there. It is a significant milestone and testament to the state of the net, programming, an understanding of collaborative workflow, and an advanced way of seeking a way to simplify, streamline, enhance collaboration, and reduce the costs associated with day-to-day business. Enter Ismael Ghalimi and ITRedux. Ismael Ghalimi, CEO, Intalio Per his own words,…

October 2006 Lunch 2.0

Written by Alison McNeill Friday afternoon I attended the Lunch 2.0 luncheon, but it was actually more of a “linner” since it began at 4 p.m., at oDesk’s headquarters in Menlo Park. The atmosphere was much friendlier than that of some of the other events I’ve attended, as the oDesk staff was very eager to answer questions and give demos. There was pizza and beer, as any good linner should have, as well as a few familiar faces. I also…
