Defrag is Coming…

DefragNovember 3rd and 4th will be here before we know it, and with it will come the second annual Defrag conference.  I had the pleasure of participating on a panel last year but I would be remiss in saying that simply attending was a fantastic experience.  The discussion spanned a nice set of topics and the goal of the conference is to be probing into emerging topics in an intimate setting rather than covering the same topics that all of the mainstream conferences are covering.

Just by taking a look at this year’s agenda, it is set to not disappoint.  Great speakers and intriguing topics end-to-end.  Just by skimming through the topics slated, this year’s conference is really going to be probing into the future edges of some critical topics we are dealing with today such as identity, data portability, lifestream and next level discovery.   The current state of topics is obviously touched on but the goal it to really probe, make assumption and set hypothesis on where we are going.

I’m happy to have an opportunity to participate again as a speaker in a session called “Around the Horn” moderated by Paul Kedrosky.  My co-panelists will be John Kembel from HiveLive and Jeff Herman from Fuser.  With the Around the Horn theme, who knows what topics we’ll be covering.  Yes, be afraid, be very afraid.

NOTE: Defrag is still running a bonus upon bonus discount special for the rest of the week.  You can take advantage of it by using code ‘lp1’ – that will get you an additional $100 off of current early bird prices.
