Blogging from Office 2.0 Conference

Written by Sean Murphy. Posted in Events

I will be blogging from the Office 2.0 Conference[1] for the next two days.

It’s a set of tools that I have been interested in for a while–blogs, wikis, content management systems, chat/IM, VoIP–with a focus on enabling small teams to work more effectively against a deadline. This is the challenge that software startups need to surmount if they are to win the battle of maneuver against their larger, better funded, and more established competitors. I think one of the primary benefits these newer tools offer is that a small team can maintain a shared situational awareness in complex and rapidly evolving environments/markets.

I had the pleasure of sitting next to Ori Weinroth from Microsoft, during the morning sessions. I was surprised to learn that they also had a product family called Office, because they were not listed as an participant.

    Hi Sean,

    Collanos does precisely this, allowing teams to work more effectively through context-based workspaces as opposed to email and other scattered solutions or expensive enterprise solutions. Oh, yes our solutions are free (More along the line of P2P 2.0).

    […] I think we are still very early days on this approach to computing. I was impressed by 3Tera’s demo at Office 2.0 two years ago, but it was clearly very early days. Today it’s real: even though Amazon’s EC2 is marked beta, there are a number of firms in production and building businesses on it (and many other cloud platforms). […]
