‘Office 2.0 Conference’ gathers pace

I don’t often comment on IT shows, but the forthcoming Office 2.0 Conference to be held in San Fran in October caught my eye. Organised by IT|Redux, the list of speakers attending reads like a who’s who of sexy Web 2.0 (sorry, I mean Office 2.0) start-ups and investor types, along with the odd giant:

– Rod Boothby, Manager, Ernst & Young

– Avi Bryant, co-CEO, Dabble DB

– Mike Cannon-Brookes, CEO, Atlassian

– Andrew Catton, co-CEO, Dabble DB

– Jeff Clavier, Managing Partner, SoftTech VC

– Nik Cubrilovic, CEO, Omnidrive

– Jnan Dash, CTO, Foldera

– Anil Dash, Vice President, Evangelism, Six Apart

– Scott Dietzen, President and CTO, Zimbra

– Ismael Chang Ghalimi, CEO, Intalio

– Konstantin Guericke, Vice President of Marketing, LinkedIn

– Bruno Hald, Head of Strategy, System One

– Matt Marshall, Columnist, The Mercury News

– Ross Mayfield, CEO, Socialtext

– Jeffrey McManus, CEO, Approver

– John Roberts, CEO, SugarCRM

– Narendra Rocherolle, Principal, 83 Degrees

– Ken Rudin, CEO, LucidEra

– Dylan Schiemann, CEO, SitePen

– Tom Snyder, President, iNetOffice

– Bob Sutor, VP, Standards and Open Source, IBM

– Sridhar Vembu, CEO, Zoho

– Charlie Wood, Principal, Spanning Partners

– Jason Wood, Principal, Rothschild Capital Partners

– Ray Wu, Director, Venture Management, HP

– David Young, CEO, Joyent

It’s being organised by the ebullient Ismael Ghalimi of IT|Redux, founder and CEO of Intalio, creator of BPMI.org (since folded into the OMG) and indeed the initiator of Office 2.0. He told me, “The goal is to collectively build the foundation for Office 2.0.” Should be fun.

Looks like it will be a good event. The only question now is who’s going to pay for my flights!
