First Public Genesis Demo at the Office 2.0 Conference

I just got confirmation from Ismael Ghalimi that I got a presentation session at the upcoming Office 2.0 conference in San Francisco. It will be the first public demo of the Genesis development in progress and I am excited that we can do it at Office 2.0. I attended the conference last year and really liked the mix of customer, vendor and analyst presentations. The vendor showcase was really interesting as well and I will certainly roam it this year again to find potential partners for the Genesis eco-system.
So if you are attending Office 2.0 please come to my session on Friday at 8:15am (I know it is early, but I promise it will be worth it). If you didn’t plan to attend Office 2.0 you might want to consider registering last minute. As an incentive all attendees will receive a HP 2133 Mini-Note PC.
Office 2.0 kicks off this fall’s conference season for me. The following week I will present at SAP TechEd in Las Vegas and other conferences including SAP TechEd in Berlin and Adobe MAX in San Francisco. More about those soon.

Enterprise UI Summit

Tomorrow morning I am flying to Aspen to participate in the first Enterprise UI Summit. The Summit is organized by Jive Software and brings together an interesting mix of enterprise software practitioners and UI designers from companies like SAP, Google and Adobe. In preparation for the summit I answered a couple of questions which Jive CMO Sam Lawrence emailed me the other day. You can find the discussion here. His blog has also the profiles of other participants which are worthwhile to read if you are interested in UI design for enterprise applications.
I am certainly proud of the Genesis UI design and excited to show it to some other experts in the field and get feedback.
