If you've been around long enough, you'll remember VON - Voice on the Net - a conference that defined the VoIP/IP comms space in its early days when it was truly disruptive. Much has changed, and Jeff Pulver continues to explore how technology is changing our lives. Ten years ago, it was all about voice, but today it's all about messaging for Jeff, and that brings us to MoNage - Messaging on the Net.
I have a long history with Jeff - as many of us do - and am very glad to see him back in our space, and also glad to be part of next week's event. MoNage is running from September 20-22 in Boston, and many of us from the VON days will be there. I'll be speaking on a panel session about enterprise messaging, moderated by my good friend, Chris Fine. We'll be joined by Ross Daniels of Cisco, and Lawrence Miller of Symphony.
Our session runs at 10am on Tuesday on the main stage, and if you're there I hope you can join us.
Just today, I've been added to a second session, and if you scroll down further on the above link, I'll be joining Alan Duric on his 4pm session that day, titled End to End Messaging.
Otherwise, it's not too late to register and make your way to the Boston Public Library. I'll be there first thing Tuesday and will blog/tweet as time allows.
As a coda, I'm currently working on a Q&A interview with Jeff Pulver, and will post that as soon as it's ready.
