[AoyW] The Office 2.0 Conference
I just came across the web site for the upcoming Office 2.0 Conference which has an interesting list of speakers from web 2.0 startups.
As you might expect, most or all of these outfits offer hosted or intranet solutions. As such, they have to run the gantlet of the corporate IT dept for vetting/approval before they can solve any user problems. In other words, they can't spread virally among most enterprise users, a problem which consumer web services don't have.
Nonetheless, the goals of these startups are much the same as those of the always-on-you web, even if their solution architecture is Web 1.1 :-)
