As I am starting to put together a number of different blog posts sharing some of the highlights from the wonderful Enterprise 2.0 conference event that took place last week in Boston, MA, here I am, once again, on the road, and without hardly any time to breathe in between. Yes, that’s right! I am travelling again! Not even a full day back at home and today I am in Lucerne, Switzerland, for a day or so. Thus, as you can imagine, those highlights entries from the Enterprise 2.0 event will have to wait for a little while longer. But they will be coming around eventually. Not to worry. Along with a bunch of other draft blog posts that I will starting sharing once my travelling spree comes to an end, within the next few days…
So you may be wondering what I am up to in Lucerne, right? Well, a couple of months back, one of my fellow IBM colleagues, Nicole Gross, invited me to participate at the IBM Symposium 2008 event, which will take place during the course of tomorrow. As you would be able to check from the actual Web site, it surely is going to be a packed event and at around 11.10 am CET I will be speaking around the subject that has been keeping me occupied quite a bit during the last few months… Yes, indeed, I will be sharing my story on how I have now given up on e-mail, i.e. corporate e-mail, and use much more heavily social software tools in order to stay equally productive, if not more.
And just like I mentioned in a previous blog post, I have adapted that presentation theme and finalised it with the following title: See the Light – Thinking out of the Inbox.
Over the last four and a half months I have been working my way through escaping corporate e-mail and use social computing tools instead and so far it is looking very promising. I know I have got to blog the last couple of weeks with some of the latest reports and a few other links I have bumped into here and there, but if you have been checking out my Flickr account, you probably have seen already how things are going. But, not to worry, expect those blog posts coming up shortly, too, with some interesting links on the subject that I have bumped into while I have been on the road all this time!
Thus there you go. Tomorrow morning I will be at the IBM Symposium 2008 talking, once more, on the topic of "See the Light – Thinking out of the Inbox" and surprise, surprise, it will not be the last time this week that I will be talking on that very same topic, but in a different city, in a different country. But that would be the story for another blog post! For now, just a quick update on where I am going to spend the first part of this week and why you may need to wait for a little while longer before my regular blogging will resume again… Hang in there!
PS. Oh, and if you would want to meet up for a coffee or a drink, while I am in Lucerne to catch up with each other, get in touch! 😀
