I’m signed up for this and looking forward to interacting with an excellent group of participants.
“OSN2005 will be a summit for
all those interested in working with social networking processes,
tools, and media. In addition to attending many workshops, panels, and
presentations by leading experts and practitioners, attendees will have
the opportunity to be part of a community with a significant role in
defining the future direction of online social networking. If you want
to help shape this industry, come to OSN2005!
During the OSN2005 summit we will co-create and publish a manifesto
describing what we want and need from online social networking tools.
What are the key criteria for choosing and assessing OSN products and
services? What gaps exist in currently available software and related
tools? What needs to happen before it’s common knowledge that OSN
products and services can deliver significant value? What are the most
promising developments in the OSN industry?
Attendees will be invited to participate in a series of focus groups to
provide feedback on current OSN technology and articulate specific
suggestions for future features and developments. A series of White
papers based on these focus groups will be shared with venture
investors who want to know where to place their bets in this industry.
Join Howard Rheingold, Lisa Kimball, Joi Ito, and a host of online social network experts to:
* Exchange ideas with experienced pioneers and leading thinkers in OSN development
