eComm2008: Industry Innovators Meeting This Week

Just a reminder that Lee Dryburgh has put together a conference, eComm 2008, that includes many of the innovators who have been working to revolutionize how we communicate going forward. Lee wants it to be known as the "Trillion Dollar Industry Rethink". From the eComm 2008 press release issued last week, Lee states:

“The speakers participating in eComm are just the kind of forward-thinking people who will spark debate about the future of the industry. What I’m hearing during my preliminary conversations with them is a prelude, I believe, to the thought-provoking, high-energy dialogue that will be taking place at eComm.”

Leadoff speaker will be Jonathan Christensen, Skype’s GM of Video and Audio, who led the recent widely acclaimed (here and here, for instance) launch of Skype’s High Quality Video for which new interactive video programming concepts are being incorporated into one of Oprah Winfrey’s new productions. Skype Journal recently covered Jonathan’s interview with Lee as a lead-up to the conference itself. On a day-to-day operating basis I am finding that many of my Skype calls are now enhanced by the use of Skype’s video.

Have a look also at Lee’s "Call for a Telephone Industry Wakeup." Phil and I will be attending and covering the proceedings. I’m especially looking forward to meeting many of those fellow bloggers and industry thinkers whom I have met on the Internet but never in person previously.
