Tomorrow (Nov.5th) is the beginning of the Defrag Conference, here in Denver Colorado.
Bottom line: Defrag is a conference about solving the “augmentation” of how we turn loads of information into layers of knowledge; about the “aha” moment of the brainstorm. As such, it encompasses many technologies we’re all familiar with (wikis, blogs, search) and many new, developing technologies (context, relevance, next-level discovery) — and tries to see them all through a new prism.
If you haven’t heard already, a new conference on Implicit Web topics will be held Nov. 5-6, in Denver, Colorado:
Defrag is the first conference focused solely on the internet-based tools that transform loads of information into layers of knowledge, and accelerate the “aha” moment. Defrag is about the space that lives in between knowledge management, “social” networking, collaboration and business intelligence. Defrag is not a version number. Rather it’s a gathering place for the growing community of implementers, users, builders and thinkers that are working on the next wave of software innovation.
This conference is being organized by Eric Norlin, who has been blogging on implicit web topics for a while now. I’ve started getting to know Eric via e-mail and look forward to meeting him and other Implicit Web folks in person at this conference.
