It looks like I'm going to be on the New Platforms panel at the Office 2.0 Conference next Friday in San Francisco.

If you haven't heard about the conference, the site says:

The Office 2.0 Conference is a collective experiment organized every year in San Francisco, CA and aimed at discovering the future of online productivity & collaboration. It is a unique gathering of visionaries, thought leaders, and customers using innovative online services for getting things done at the office, at home, and on the go. Please register before August 31st in order to benefit from the online rate. All attendees get an iPhone or a PlayStation 3.

Yes, I now have an iPhone but haven't removed the wrapping yet. Too much to do before I play with yet another distracting and shiny toy!

Anyway, about our panel topic...

The Web is the platform, but simple things like copy-and-paste, single sign-on, or integrated billing are nowhere near in sight. In order to address these requirements, new platforms such as AppExchange, WebEx Connect, and OpenSAM are emerging. This session will provide an attempt at defining the concept for a Web platform, and outline the opportunities that exist for participants in these new ecosystems.

I still contend that There is no Web Operating System (or WebOS), so this discussion should be interesting. Either we're all going to agree about a lot of things, or I'll be there to argue with everyone. :-)

I expect to learn a lot from it. Drop by and say "hi" If you're in the neighborhood.

Hey Jeremy --

I'll see you at the conference! My new gig, TimeBridge, is a sponsor, and we're demoing our product -- just launced into public beta.

And I did unwrap my IPhone and set it up -- you can see how much I like it (not) on my Flickr stream

See you at the conference!
